Italian Football Association (FIGC) President Gabriele Gravina said on Monday that Juventus will be banned from the next season of Serie A if they choose to remain part of the European Super League and the Rebel.
Nine of the 12 founding clubs of the European Super League have confirmed their commitment to UEFA. The three remaining clubs – Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona – had refused to rejoin UEFA and are therefore facing additional penalties.
“The rules are clear. So Juventus is part of Super League when it enters the next season, it cannot participate in Serie A,” Gabriele Gravina told Radio Kiss Kiss, as reported by Goal.com.
He said, “I will feel sorry for the fans, but the rules are the rules and they apply to everyone.” I hope this resistance ends soon.”
Gravina also said that he is keen to ensure that Juventus are not banned in Serie A. “These are simple principles, stated by the Olympic Charter and then reported by the laws of national and international associations,” Gravina told Radio Anch’io Sport.
“There are clear principles that establish the uniqueness of sports management. I hope this dispute can be resolved as soon as possible. We are all a bit tired of this war between UEFA and these three clubs. I hope to be able to mediate between Juventus and UEFA,” he added.
Speaking further, Gravina said: “This is not good for international football, Italian football, or Juventus. We have already said that the Football Association follows the rules. The rules provide for non-participation in our championships if there are principles established by the federation and UEFA was not accepted.”
The announcement to create a separatist European Super League made by 12 founding clubs including Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur has been widely criticized. As a result, all six Premier League clubs in the proposed European Super League withdrew from the competition.
