Bernd Reichart, CEO of A22, the company that gives institutional support to the Super League, has announced on Toni Kroos’s podcast that he will travel to Nyon next week to speak directly with UEFA. “That is what I understand by dialogue, that the other party is listened to and we can confront ideas. Obviously, we will not be able to agree on everything. But it’s a good sign for clubs who are perhaps still shying away at the moment or even fearing sanctions if they engage in dialogue. UEFA’s commitment that an open dialogue on the future of football should be possible is a positive sign,” Reichart explained.

In the same podcast, Reichart went on to add that, according to the Super League’s criteria, “European football is not realizing its potential at the moment. It can offer better matches and better competitions in Europe. We are concerned about the economic ecosystem of the clubs, which are currently under financial pressure, and we believe that the European club competition should be organized by the clubs themselves, as is done in the national leagues”.

And he concluded, “The Premier is taking advantage of the rest of the championships and an imbalance is taking place. These are questions that must be studied. The Super League is not a closed competition nor does it have permanent members”. By that, the Super League make it clear that it will be structured so that teams will progress or not based on sporting merits.

FIFA and UEFA face a legal battle with the Super League in the European Court of Justice. The breakaway Super League believes that the two governing bodies breached competition law in their attempts to prevent rival competitions becoming established.
