The owners of the breakaway competition issued a statement for reshaping of European Super League stating that they will ‘consider the most necessary measures to reshape the project,’ adding it isn’t a full suspension, but it does bring a halt on attempts to move forward at a rapid rate.
All six Premier League teams involved in the European Super League announces withdrawal of their entry from the new midweek competition. This step was taken on Tuesday within less than 48 hours of the launch of the ESL on Sunday Evening.
The list of Premier League clubs that took a stepback includes Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur.
Reshaping of European Super League
“The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change,” read tonight’s statement according to the Goal.
“We are proposing a new European competition because the existing system does not work. Our proposal is aimed at allowing the sport to evolve while generating resources and stability for the full football pyramid, including helping to overcome the financial difficulties experienced by the entire football community as a result of the pandemic.”
“It would also provide materially enhanced solidarity payments to all football stakeholders.”
The European Super League has promised to “reshape the project” after its plans were left in tatters following the withdrawal of the six English clubs initially signed up for the breakaway competition.
“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations as was demonstrated today by a court decision to protect the Super League from third party actions.”
“Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community.”
