Along with the overwhelming majority of fans, Football Supporters Europe (FSE) is wholly opposed to plans to create a breakaway super league.
This closed shop competition will be the final nail in the coffin of European football, forsaking everything that has made it so popular and successful—sporting merit, promotion and relegation, qualification to UEFA competitions via domestic success, and financial solidarity.
It is illegitimate, irresponsible, and anti-competitive by design.
More to the point, it is driven exclusively by greed. The only ones who stand to gain are hedge funds, oligarchs, and a handful of already wealthy clubs, many of which perform poorly in their own domestic leagues despite their inbuilt advantage.
Enough is enough.
FSE calls on football’s governing bodies to act immediately to protect the European game: first, by imposing sanctions on breakaway clubs; and second, by scrapping proposals to reform UEFA club competitions, which were designed to benefit the same clubs.
