Huge blow for FIFA and UEFA, who no longer have control over the Super League project

The European Court of Justice has come out with a shocking verdict that both UEFA and FIFA have acted against the competition law when blocking the European Super League project back in 2021.

Some of those so called “big clubs” were threatened with sanctions, but they managed to initiate a legal process, the latest decision in which is the European Court verdict.

This essentially means the Super League project, snubbed back in April 2021 could be back on track as FIFA and UEFA have been deemed to act inappropriately.

“The FIFA and UEFA rules making any new interclub football project subject to their prior approval, such as the Super League, and prohibiting clubs and players from playing in those competitions, are unlawful. There is no framework for the FIFA and UEFA rules ensuring that they are transparent, objective, non-discriminatory and proportionate,” the verdict summary read.
