Man City and Manchester United will not be allowed to return to the European Super League, even if they so choose.

The European Court of Justice has granted the defunct European Super League, which included Man United and Manchester City as founding members, a chance to come back.

 

 

Twelve clubs participated in the proposed European Super League, including City and United. After 48 hours, both retracted.

A new government bill that is being proposed would prohibit Manchester United and Manchester City from participating in any breakaway leagues, including the European Super League.

 

When they revealed their intentions to quit the Premier League and create a closed Super League in 2021, United and City were two of the twelve teams that rocked European football.

The clubs withdrew one by one in response to public outcry and protests from fans, leaving only Barcelona and Real Madrid to attempt to revive the plans.

 

The Premier League and UEFA fined the Manchester clubs, making the idea appear doomed. However, on Thursday, the European Court of Justice declared that FIFA and UEFA had committed illegal acts by preventing clubs from joining other leagues. The Super League could theoretically be revived as a result, with organizers revealing a new proposal right away for the league to include 64 teams in addition to domestic leagues.

 

Although the proposal appears to replace the Champions League and include promotion and relegation, a government spokesman has stated that English clubs will not be allowed to participate in independent competitions such as the Super League, regardless of the outcome of the European Court of Justice.

After a fan-led review of English football, the government accepted the recommendation to establish an independent regulator and is now drafting legislation. The proposed Football Governance Bill will ban clubs from entering leagues such as the Super League.

 

“We note the European Court of Justice’s decision regarding the European Super League,” a representative for the Department of Culture, Media, and Sport stated.

 

“The attempt to establish a breakaway competition was widely denounced by supporters, clubs, and the government, and it marked a turning point in English football history.

 

“At the time, we took decisive action by starting the fan-led review of football governance, which demanded the establishment of a new, independent body to oversee English football.

“We will soon be proposing legislation to make this a reality and prohibit clubs from participating in any future breakaway competitions of that kind.”

 

United previously released a statement reaffirming their dedication to UEFA competition and stating they would not pursue a return to the Super League. Following their withdrawal, City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak stated that the team had erred in accepting the proposals and that they should never have joined the Super League. We’ve contacted City for a response.
