Fifa reacted in a statement to the announcement of the creation of the European Super League launched by twelve English, Italian and Spanish clubs, saying “disapprove” of this initiative.
There is no question of threats yet, but the message is clear. “ FIFA can only disapprove of a closed and dissident European League outside football structures “, Thus indicated the international body after the official announcement of the creation of the European Super League, launched by twelve English, Italian and Spanish clubs and intended to supplant the Champions League organized by UEFA.

Fifa also invited to dialogue. “Fifa wants to clarify that it is firmly positioned in favor of solidarity in football and a fair redistribution model, indicated the body chaired by Gianni Infantino. Fifa always stands in favor of unity in world football and calls on all parties involved in heated discussions to engage in a calm, constructive and balanced dialogue for the good of this game. “
If UEFA has not yet reacted to the official launch of the Super League, recorded on Sunday evening, the confederation had not been slow to express its disagreement and adopt a threatening tone. If the project succeeds, the participating clubs could thus be excluded from the domestic championships and the players banned from playing in international competitions like the Euro or the World Cup.
