The reactions of FIFA and national leagues

Fifa “can only express its disapproval of a ‘closed European separatist league’ outside the international football structures”. He commented on the decision of the 12 European clubs to form the Super League. “Any football competition, national, regional or global, should always reflect the fundamental principles of solidarity, inclusiveness, integrity and fair financial redistribution”, adds the note from FIFA, principles that the new initiative, in his opinion, “does not respect”.

“In light of the numerous requests from the media and as already stated several times – reads the note from the Federation – FIFA wishes to clarify that it remains firmly in favor of solidarity football and a model of equitable redistribution of resources that can help develop the football as a sport, particularly globally, given that the development of global football is Fifa’s primary mission ”. “In our view, and in accordance with our statutes, any football competition, national, regional or global, should always reflect the fundamental principles of solidarity, inclusiveness, integrity and fair financial redistribution. Furthermore, the governing bodies of football – adds the Federation – should employ all legal, sporting and diplomatic means to ensure that it remains so. In this context, FIFA can only express its disapproval of a ‘European separatist league closed outside the international football structures and which does not respect the principles mentioned above ”.

Andrea Agnelli’s comment: “We stay in national competitions”

“The 12 founding clubs represent millions of fans around the world. We have come together at this critical time for European competition to transform, giving the sport we love a foundation that is sustainable for the future, substantially increasing solidarity and giving fans and amateur players a dream and top quality matches to fuel the passion for football “. These are the words of Andrea Agnelli, president of Juventus and vice president of the newly formed Superlega, in the note with which the birth of the new club competition is announced on the Real Madrid website.

The “founding clubs” of the Super League “will continue to participate in their respective national competitions and, until the actual start of the Super League, Juventus believes it will participate in the European competitions to which it has the right to enter”. It is a passage from the note with which Juventus announces membership of the Super League.

The no of the world of international politics

Even from the world of politics a sharp no had arrived during the day. Boris Johnson among the first to take sides. According to the British Premier – it would be “very harmful to football”. “The clubs involved need to respond to their fans and the wider football community before taking new steps,” he wrote in a tweet.
