A court ruling has now determined that Manchester United are legally allowed to join the Super League without threat of sanction.

The competition aimed to have the top 20 clubs across Europe competing in their own league rather than their respective domestic leagues, but it was banned by UEFA and FIFA.

It was claimed by the ESL and its backers, A22, that Uefa and Fifa were breaking competition law by threatening to sanction clubs and players who joined the breakaway league.

However, a European Court of Justice ruling has now announced that UEFA and FIFA rules blocking clubs from joining breakaway competitions are unlawful.

The summary of the ruling by The European Union Court Of Justice said” “UEFA does not have exclusive control over football, a club competition can be organized, and the Super League cannot be discriminated against in any way. Clubs can decide their future.”

Manchester United pulled out of the European Super League after pressure from fans and FIFA/UEFA officials but are now free to join again after it was ruled that the clubs are allowed to dictate their own future rather than football governing bodies.

This means that Should Manchester United choose to join, there are no legal ways of stopping the club from doing do.
