Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus they have issued statements referring to the Super League in which they report the judicial decision that the UEFA revoke, with immediate effect, all their performances against the founding clubs of the Super League. The Madrid statement reads the following:
“FC Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid CF express their satisfaction with the judicial decision adopted today, ordering UEFA to revoke, with immediate effect, all their performances against the founding clubs of the European Super Leagueincluding the definitive file of the disciplinary file open to the aforementioned three clubs So what void the fines and other restrictions that were imposed on the remaining nine founding clubs, as a condition for them not to be the subject of disciplinary proceedings by UEFA.
In this way the courts again support the position of the promoters of the European Super League and dismiss the appeal brought by UEFA, confirming the warning to the latter that failure to comply with this resolution could lead to financial sanctions and criminal liability. The case will be analyzed by the Court of Justice of the European Union in Luxembourg, which will review the monopoly position that UEFA holds over European football.
We have a duty to address the challenges facing football. UEFA has claimed the position, exclusively, of regulator, operator and sole owner and manager of European football competitions. This position of monopoly, in conflict of interest, seriously damages football and its competitive equilibrium. As has been demonstrated multiple times, financial controls are inadequate and have not been applied objectively. Clubs participating in European competitions have the right to govern their own competitions.
We are pleased to know that, from now on, we will not be subjected to constant threats from UEFA
