The Super League breakaway project is still in the works as often remind us the presidents of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona as well as Juventus. AC Milan were included among the founding teams behind the failed project.
This time, FC Barcelona's president, Joan Laporta, spoke to the Spanish newspaper Sport about the tournament:
"The Super League is a great opportunity. But all the parties involved will only be able to win through dialogue. The Super League aims to improve football, to fight for the sustainability of football, so that the clubs come out of a moment of great difficulty and can be more and more competitive and have more resources. The Super League will be like a much improved Champions League, based on meritocracy, without club discrimination, but with guarantees and rules that will allow for more resources."
Joan Laporta continued:
"An important step forward was taken with the meeting between Super League CEO Bernd Reichart and UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin. For the founding clubs, there is an initial bonus of € 1000 million euros. We could get around 300 million per season. Also, the key to the Super League is that the clubs will be in control. UEFA will also play an important role, but the clubs will have the final say. In March, there will be a resolution by the Luxembourg Court and having initiated this dialogue with UEFA, I think the competition could begin in a couple of seasons."
