Defiant statement by European Super League amid 'big six' withdrawal.

In a defiant statement, European Super League officials have issued a statement following the decision of the Premier League’s Big Six to pull out, with the body insisting that ‘football needs to change.’

All England’s ‘big six’ clubs Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Tottenham all made it clear of their intentions to withdraw from the controversial plans, following a fierce backlash from all over the football world.

The breakaway proposals to form the ESL now seem to have been left in tatters, but now European Super League organizers have insisted they still want to see a new structure implemented – although they now reconsider on “reshaping the project”.

The statement read: “The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change.


“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 to the pressure put 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.”

Just moments after European Super League issued their statement, The Blues announced that they had “begun the formal procedures for withdrawal” from the controversial ESL plans.

Chelsea statement read:
: “As reported earlier this evening, Chelsea Football Club can confirm that it has begun the formal procedures for withdrawal from the group developing plans for a European Super League.

“Having joined the group late last week, we have now had time to consider the matter fully and have decided that our continued participation in these plans would not be in the best interests of the Club, our supporters or the wider football community.”
