European Super League Release Statement After Premier League's 'Big Six' Pull Out

The European Super League released an official statement after England's 'big six' quit the controversial project.


Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal have all confirmed they plan to pull out of the proposed competition following intense backlash.


The ESL has since been suspended as a result of the Premier League sides withdrawing - with the tournament releasing a statement, claiming the "current system does not work."

"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 out (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."

Serie A giants Inter Milan have also left with cross-town rivals AC Milan also set to leave.

But Juventus and the Spanish clubs are still committed to the European Super League.
