European Club Association Reacts to New Super League Proposal

The European Club Association has released a joint statement as it concerns the new proposal for the Super League.

This statement was made available by the body on Thursday, February 9th, 2023. According to the ECA, this is just another deliberately distorted and misleading attempt to destabilize the constructive work currently taking place between football's real stakeholders.

As the sole organisation recognised by FIFA and UEFA representing clubs at European and international level, and the only body through which clubs have genuine representation in their decision-making, ECA reiterates its long-standing opposition to the European Super League and any breakaway project. A great amount of progress and positive change has been achieved by ECA in recent years in collaborative partnership with all football stakeholders UEFA, FIFA and the confederations, national associations, leagues, fans, players, and clubs of all sizes working for the benefit of the entire European football ecosystem. From 2024 more clubs from more countries will participate in European men’s club competitions every season, growing the passion of European football and greatly increasing the amount of revenue being shared.  Significant progress can be seen across other aspects of the game from women’s football, youth and academy development, finance, and regulation to sustainability and social impact.  

The company formed to sponsor and assist with the creation of the Super League, A22, has consulted with clubs across Europe since October. According to reports, the new project is a result of conversations with clubs around Europe on the financial issues they're facing.
