Six English clubs are among the 12 that have signed up for the breakaway European Super League.
According to The Times, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham Hotspur had all agreed to be part of the league, with Manchester City the last to do so on Saturday evening.
The latest development comes a day before UEFA's planned announcement, which is set to launch a new format on Monday, which will see 36 teams starting 2024.
Here are the 12 teams that have reportedly agreed to join;
- 🏴 Manchester United
- 🏴 Liverpool
- 🏴 Arsenal
- 🏴 Chelsea
- 🏴 Tottenham Hotspur
- 🏴 Man City
- 🇪🇸 Barcelona
- 🇪🇸 Real Madrid
- 🇪🇸 Atletico Madrid
- 🇮🇹 Inter Milan
- 🇮🇹 AC Milan
- 🇮🇹 Juventus
Despite being courted, the likes of Bayern Munich, PSG, and Borussia Dortmund are yet to join the Super League teams.
UEFA, LaLiga, English Premier League, and the Serie A have all condemned the plans, warning players and teams that they will be met with serious sanctions.
“UEFA, the English Football Association and the Premier League, the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and LaLiga, and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) and Lega Serie A have learned that a few English, Spanish and Italian clubs may be planning to announce their creation of a closed, so-called Super League,” read UEFA’s statement.
“If this were to happen, we wish to reiterate that we – UEFA, the English FA, RFEF, FIGC, the Premier League, LaLiga, Lega Serie A, but also FIFA and all our member associations – will remain united in our efforts to stop this cynical project, a project that is founded on the self-interest of a few clubs at a time when society needs solidarity more than ever.
