Premier League’s Reaction to Super League

Premier League’s Reaction to Super League

The new Super League, championed by twelve European clubs, has the backing of the ‘Big Six’ of Premier League. With widespread disapproval of English fans to this fact pouring in, here is Premier League’s reaction to Super League.

The English top-flight branded the Super League “dirty dozen” as anti-competitive and hinted that they undermine the integrity of football.

In a statement, the English top-flight said: “A European Super League will undermine the appeal of the whole game, and have a deeply damaging impact on the immediate and future prospects of the Premier League and its member clubs, and all those in football who rely on our funding and solidarity to prosper.”

So, it is safe to say that Premier League’s reaction to Super League is one of whole-hearted disapproval and rejection.

“The Premier League condemns any proposal that attacks the principles of open competition and sporting merit which are at the heart of the domestic and European football pyramid,” their statement begins.

“Fans of any club in England and across Europe can currently dream that their team may climb to the top and play against the best. We believe that the concept of a European Super League would destroy this dream.”

It then went on to uphold their own domestic league’s ideals: “The Premier League is proud to run a competitive and compelling football competition that has made it the most widely watched league in the world. Our success has enabled us to make an unrivalled financial contribution to the domestic football pyramid.”

Finally, they revealed their plan of action, going forward: “We will work with fans, The FA, EFL, PFA and LMA, as well as other stakeholders, at home and abroad, to defend the integrity and future prospects of English football in the best interests of the game.”

There are other sources of rejection in England, as the football world erupts over this news.
