UEFA drop legal action against Super League clubs

28 Sep 2021

UEFA have dropped the legal action they had been planning to take against Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus – the three clubs who remain committed to the so-called European Super League project.

European football’s governing body remain firm in their opposition to the creation of the Super League, and have left the door open to possible sanctions down the line, fearful of other attempts that might yet come.

Having opened disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus, they have now had to close those, respecting decisions made by courts. They remain, though, adamant that the Super League will not go ahead.

Judge Ruiz de Lara had ordered UEFA to drop any proceedings agains the aforementioned clubs, giving them five days to do so.

The 12 clubs involved in the original creation of the Super League remain part of a company maintaining a legal challenge brought through a Madrid court on the day they announced their plan for a breakaway competition.

Although only three clubs remain actively supportive of the Super League, all 12 clubs remain shareholders.

UEFA Statement

UEFA takes note of the letter sent today by the independent UEFA Appeals Body in which the disciplinary proceedings that had been opened against FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF for a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project have been declared null and void, without any prejudice, as if the proceedings had never been opened.
