After unified condemnation from the global football community, the European Club Association has worked closely with UEFA ahead of the announcement today by nine of the twelve clubs involved in founding the so-called Super League.
The nine clubs have renounced the project, apologised for their actions and reaffirmed their commitments to engage with ECA and with the official structures of European football under the governance of UEFA.
This decision comes following strong alignment between ECA and UEFA over recent days and weeks on how to manage the disruption caused by the ill-fated project.
The ECA Executive Board will now decide upon arrangements with these clubs going forwards.
As the only legitimate representative body for clubs recognised by UEFA, ECA will continue to pursue our efforts alongside UEFA and other football stakeholders in shaping the future of the European game, the importance of which is more vital now than ever.
