Uefa released a joint statement, together with England’s Football Association, the Premier League, the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), La Liga, and the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) as well as Serie A, on Sunday.

In specific, all teams that join the Super League will be banned from any other competition at Domestic, European, or World level. Additionally, the players in these teams may also be denied the opportunity to represent their countries on a national level.

The statement also gives thanks to clubs from the French and German leagues – notably Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain – for denying participation in such a league. UEFA makes clear their sentiment towards the idea of a Super League, and what it represents for the rest of football: “This persistent self-interest of a few has been going on for too long. Enough is enough.”

In a separate statement, the Premier League said it condemned the proposal as it “attacks the principles of open competition and sporting merit which are at the heart” of domestic and European football.

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden said in a statement the government is “concerned this plan could create a closed shop at the very top of our national game”.

He added:
Quote
“We have a football pyramid where funds from the globally successful Premier League flow down the leagues and into local communities.

“I would be bitterly disappointed to see any action that destroys that.”
