12 of the top teams in Europe have announced plans to form a new competition, the European Super League.
The Super League will include the big six teams in Europe and rival the Champions League.
What Football Clubs are involved?
The competition will include the “big 6” of the premier league, which have already signed up.
Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United, and Manchester City will be joined by Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Atletico Madrid from Spain as the founding clubs.
Other top teams like Juventus, AC Milan, and Inter Milan will also be present.
It is anticipated that a further 3 clubs will join before the first season.
German giants, Bayern Munich, and Borussia Dortmund are yet to join, along with Paris Saint Germain from France.
How The competition will be played
According to information on the European Super League website, the competition will be played between 20 teams.
The participants will be the 15 founding clubs along with 5 other clubs that qualify based on their performance each season.
The major complaint about the competition is that it kills competition by automatically including the 15 founding teams each season.
Who’s financing the league?
The European Super League is being financed by American bank JP Morgan.
$5 Million has been laid down for the project out of which the 15 founding teams will receive €3.5 million.
