UEFA suspend disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus
The clubs that maintained their stance on forming a European Super League will NOT be banned from the Champions League next season.
UEFA have issued a statement in which it communicates its decision to suspend the disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus for their attempt to form a breakaway European Super League.
Madrid, Barça and Juve sanctions paused
“Following the opening of disciplinary proceedings against FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF for a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project, the UEFA Appeals Body has decided to stay the proceedings until further notice,” the statement read.

This comes on the back of the Madrid court injunction filed by the Super League organisers - find out more here - but the statement does not go into any further details about what could follow after the ‘stay’ of execution.
There are several legal nuances behind UEFA's decision. The main one is that sanctioning the three clubs would go against the court order, which could lead to their members being prosecuted for not cooperating with the law.
UEFA's plan is expected to be a process of appealing the order although this could be rather drawn out.
