There is now some form of relief by top clubs around Europe as FIFA has rejected the idea of splitting and forming one big European Super League.
The news comes as a result of a threat by FIFA to prevent any players from taking part in the European Super League from playing in competitions such as the World Cup.
FIFA issued a statement on the matter, saying the following: “Any club or player involved in such a competition would as a consequence not be allowed to participate in any competition organised by FIFA or their respective confederation.
“The universal principles of sporting merit, solidarity, promotion and relegation, and subsidiarity are the foundation of the football pyramid that ensures football’s global success and are, as such, enshrined in the FIFA and confederation statutes.
“Football has a long and successful history thanks to these principles. Participation in global and continental competitions should always be won on the pitch.”
The idea itself would have left many clubs at a disadvantage both financially and domestically.
Luckily, the statement from FIFA seems to have shut down any chances of the competition forming.
