European Super League takes steps to prevent player, club punishments

:Headline: European Super League takes steps to prevent player, club punishments:
Six English clubs are part of the proposed breakaway competition.

The European Super League has already taken steps to protect itself from any attempts from UEFA and FIFA to punish its member clubs and players.

Six Premier League sides – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham – are part of an initial group of 12 clubs seeking to establish a new 20-team continental competition “as soon as practicable”.

If the plans succeed it would devastate existing European club competitions and in particular the Champions League. A joint statement including UEFA and the English, Italian and Spanish leagues published on Sunday said it would consider “all measures, both judicial and sporting” to prevent the competition going ahead.

“We have to fight to keep football simple, understandable and based on merits, and (so) everyone has the same chance and dream to be successful.”

BT Sport, UK broadcaster of the Premier League and Champions League, says the Super League could have a “damaging effect” on the game.

“BT recognises the concerns raised by many of football’s leading voices and fans and believes the formation of a European Super League could have a damaging effect to the long term health of football in this country,” a statement read.

“As a sport broadcaster showing Premier League, UEFA club football and National League football as well as being lead partner for all the home nations football teams, we strongly believe that football makes a significant positive contribution to people’s lives at every level, and this needs to be protected.”
