The European Super League are convinced their project aligns with European laws and regulations but are taking a step back to reshape the project.
The ESL believes the current system does not work and change is needed but after pressure forced all English clubs backtrack, the ESL says they will look to reshape the project.
“The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change,” the ESL statement reads.
“We are proposing a new European competition because the existing system does not work. Our proposal is aimed at allowing the sport to evolve while generating resources and stability for the full football pyramid, including helping to overcome the financial difficulties experienced by the entire football community as a result of the pandemic. It would also provide materially enhanced solidarity payments to all football stakeholders.
“Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due the pressure out on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations as was demonstrated today by a court decision to protect the Super League from third party actions.
“Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community.”
