Manchester United deal huge blow to latest European Super League developments



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have confirmed that they “remain fully committed” to participating in UEFA competitions despite the European Super League having been revamped.

On Thursday morning, it was announced by the European Court of Justice that UEFA and FIFA’s rules blocking clubs from joining breakaway competitions were unlawful.

This has prompted the conversation around the European Super League to start again, with A22, the company backing the competition, eager to get started.

However, Manchester United have now announced that they have no intention of leaving UEFA competitions such as the Champions League, Europa League, and Conference League.

“Our position has not changed,” the club said. “We remain fully committed to participation in UEFA competitions, and to positive cooperation with UEFA, the Premier League, and fellow clubs through the ECA on the continued development of the European game.”

This news comes after the UK Government said they will be legislating to introduce a football regulator that “will stop clubs from joining any similar breakaway competitions in the future.”

This is a huge blow to Florentino Pérez and Real Madrid, who are at the forefront of creating the competition, with the Old Trafford club’s rejection of the potential Super League setting a precedent for other clubs to follow.
