This project has been on since 1998, club president want a breakthrough from the UEFA organized competition.

It a long scripted movie but wasn’t well executed by the cast.

Behind the scenes

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez claim his club is in a huge debt due to the outbreak of Corona virus.

Barcelona who is also part of the project were serious debt in 2021.

The truth is that clubs weren’t satisfied, with what they get from UEFA.

They definitely want more, they thought they buy players with huge money, and drive more revenue for UEFA, but they received penny.

The clock is ticking fast and Real Madrid face a huge blow, as they were unable to sign Eric Haaland.

That’s the beginning of the stories.

Several Media outlets report that Haaland’s father and his agent Mino Raiola who talks with Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Barcelona’s president assistant picked Haaland father from the airport for talks over summer transfer, as reported by daily Mail.

The negotiation with both clubs fall through, and the major reason is that both clubs were in debt, and could meet the asking price.

Tempting offer

After this, twelve clubs came together to agree, to go on with their Super League.

It’s lucrative offer it’s difficult for one to turn down.

Over three billion available for the founding clubs.

If this went through Madrid will be able to sign Haaland, Barcelona will be able to clear its debt.

Arsenal will be able to compete in an European competition.

Fans power

And those clubs agreed, but the fans?

A well driven contents, great script but there’s a problem.

The final consumer, the fans, one of the greatest mistake made is by ignoring the power of the fans.

Manchester United fans break into Manchester United training ground, Arsenal fans chanting, want their owners out.

Liverpool the fans club, wanted to walk alone.

But the fans show their power, they’re one of the reason why the propose league wasn’t successful.

UEFA intervention

On 19 April, Aleksander ńĆeferin stated that UEFA would begin making “legal assessments” on the following day, and that the organisation would look to ban the twelve Super League clubs “as soon as possible.” However, the Super League informed UEFA and FIFA that they had begun legal action to prevent the competition from being thwarted.
