Players Involved In European Super League Will Be Banned From International Tournaments

  • Fifa reiterated long-standing policy that all competitions should be recognised by national federations and confederations

Reports that the Super League would be a ringfenced tournament, is one of FIFA's major stumbling blocks with the proposal, with the governing body saying they are committed to the idea of promotion and relegation.

A "closed European Super League", FIFA and the six global confederations said in a rare joint statement on Thursday morning, "would not be recognised by either FIFA or the respective confederation".

The Fifa president Gianni Infantino, and the game's regional confederations, have issued a strong warning to block powerful European clubs plotting a breakaway super league and insisting that any such move would need the approval of football's world governing body.

The Times newspaper said it had seen an 18-page proposal document for the Super League, which outlines a plan or a league with 15 founding members and five other clubs who would qualify annually.

However, not all of Europe's superpowers are in favour of a European Super League, with European champions Bayern Munich having revealed they would decline any invitation to join a breakaway division.

Any club or player involved in such a competition would as a effect not be allowed to participate in any competition organised by Federation Internationale de Football Association or their respective confederation, the joint statement said.

Then a week later, Barcelona's former president Josep Bartomeu confirmed the club had "agreed terms" to join a European Super League in the future.

Reports of such a tournament involving Europe's top clubs resurfaced previous year, and it was said that American banking giant JP Morgan was planning to bankroll it.

The European Leagues organisation, which brings together the continent's domestic competition said the plans were for a league with a "limited number of clubs similar to those franchise models operating in north America". The first such tournament was due to take place in China this summer but has been indefinitely postponed to enable the delayed Euro 2020 and Copa America to take place.

"We are determined to protect the existing model and how football is organised in Europe and the way the industry works for professional football". However, Fifa's statement today, authored by Infantino and supported by Ceferin suggests that, for now, Fifa and Uefa are united against an independent breakaway by the clubs to form their own competition.

"In this respect, the confederations recognise the FIFA Club World Cup, in its current and new format, as the only worldwide club competition while FIFA recognises the club competitions organised by the confederations as the only club continental competitions", the statement said.
