European Court ruling favors European Super League, but Clubs deny participation

On Thursday, December 21, 2023, the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled in favor of the Super League in its disputes with UEFA and FIFA. While this decision does not automatically imply the realization of the Super League, it constitutes a legal victory for the competition, which has been contested by global football authorities.

Despite speculations surrounding the participation of 60 clubs, several teams have publicly denied their involvement.

Manchester United reaffirmed its commitment to UEFA competitions and positive collaboration with football authorities, the Premier League, and other clubs through the ECA, emphasizing that their stance remains unchanged.

Atlético Madrid also rejected the Super League, noting that the majority of European countries, including Germany, France, England, Italy, and Spain (except for Real Madrid and Barcelona), oppose this competition.

They expressed support for preserving the unity of the European football family, protecting national leagues, and ensuring qualification based on sporting merit.

Following suit, Bayern Munich declined participation in the Super League, emphasizing that the decision of the European Court of Justice does not alter their position.

The German club reaffirmed its dedication to national leagues and the structure of European football, stating that the door to the Super League remains closed for FC Bayern.
