European Super League: UEFA drops the case against Barcelona, ​​Juventus and Real Madrid

UEFA has dropped its lawsuit against three clubs which remain committed to the European Super League.

The governing body of European football initially suspended the case against Barcelona, ​​Juventus and Real Madrid in June after the project collapsed in April.

UEFA has now announced that “in the case relating to a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework in relation to the so-called ‘Super League’, the UEFA Appeals Body said today ‘ hui the procedure null and void, as if the procedure had never been opened. “.

However, it leaves open the possibility of disciplinary action which recommences at a later stage.

It comes after a Spanish judge last week gave UEFA five days to confirm that it will comply with the court ruling and not punish teams for their involvement in the Super League as they risked a possible ban from the Champions League.

The case was also notified by the Madrid judge to the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg.

UEFA said it will also contact the nine other clubs involved in the breakaway attempt – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Inter Milan – to let them know that ‘they will not need to pay the fines imposed on them for trying to create the league.

In May, they agreed to pay a combined fine of € 15million (£ 12.8million) and 5% of their UEFA competition income withheld for a season.

“UEFA will continue to do whatever is necessary to prevent the formation of a separatist league and it reserves the right to relaunch legal proceedings if the project, or any similar project, is resurrected,” said the association.
