Super League introduces new plan with 64 clubs and 3 divisions following ruling

The European Super League’s backer, A22 Sports, has unveiled updated proposals for a new Champions League replacement, following a European court ruling. The plans include a men’s competition with 64 clubs and a women’s competition with 32 clubs. The proposal has garnered both support and opposition from various clubs, leagues, and football organizations across Europe. The article will delve into the details of the proposed Super League and the reactions it has received, shedding light on the ongoing debate and controversy surrounding the future of European club football.

A22 Sports Proposes New Champions League Replacement

In a recent development in European football, A22 Sports, the backers of the European Super League, have put forth new proposals for a replacement of the Champions League. Following a European court ruling that found UEFA’s rules restricting new competitions to be “unlawful,” A22 Sports chief executive Bernd Reichart outlined plans for a three-league, 64-club men’s competition and a two-league, 32-club women’s competition to replace the UEFA Champions League and Women’s Champions League.

The proposals have garnered support from the likes of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez and Barcelona president Joan Laporta, while others such as the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga, and Ligue 1, as well as clubs like Manchester United and Bayern Munich, have reiterated their rejection of the idea of a Super League.

The proposed new format would see the launch of a new sports streaming platform to broadcast the Super League, with all matches being available for free to fans and income being generated through advertising, premium subscriptions, and sponsorship. The men’s Super League would consist of two leagues and a third “Blue League” made up of 32 clubs, while the women’s Super League would consist of two leagues with 16 clubs in each.

However, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has made it clear that “football is not for sale,” and PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has stated that the club rejects any Super League project. The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has also reiterated its intention to protect the national championships and the broader principle of sporting merit.

The proposal by A22 Sports was the result of extensive dialogue with fans, players, clubs, and leagues over the past two years, and it remains to be seen how the situation will develop in the coming months.
