European giant clubs Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus who never backed down from the original plan of the European Super League, have contacted more than 50 clubs in an effort to organize a new European competition.
The supporters of the failed European Super League project have announced today that they want to restart it as a multi-divisional league with 60 to 80 teams, no permanent players, and a minimum of 14 games per club per season.
The announcement was timed to coincide with a new push from the three remaining rebels Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus to continue their conflict with Uefa and was made by A22, the Madrid-based sister company of the Super League (ESL).
A22 asserts that thorough discussions about the financial challenges faced by clubs across Europe led to the creation of the new project. The Premier League’s wealth, dominance in the transfer market, and impact on other European leagues with less lucrative television deals have been the targets of A22 and the ESL’s attacks over the past few months.
The original 60 to 80 teams’ makeup and how they would withdraw from the suggested competition to make room for new teams are still to be determined. The original ESL was criticized for giving permanent membership to its founding clubs, six of which were Premier League teams: the two Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur. This happened in April 2021.
