“European Super League” — Stop the People’s Game becoming the Princes’ Game

The news that 12 top European football clubs are on course to establish a new ‘European Super League’ has been met with rage by football fans across Europe. The so-called “Big Six” in the English Premier League (Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs) are to join three giants from the Spanish La Liga (Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid) and three from the Italian Serie A (Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Mian). While French giant Paris Saint-Germain has so far declined to join, talks are believed to be ongoing. Bayern Munich and other clubs in the German Bundesliga have stated their opposition at this stage.
