Chelsea news, information, and commentary
Chelsea was one among the teams that had threatened to enter a breakaway competition back in 2021, but a strong response driven by supporters forced a significant change of heart.
However, the Blues have issued an official statement distancing themselves from a European Super League comeback, following Manchester United in doing so.
Chelsea FC said in a statement that “the judgement issued today by the European Court of Justice does not change Chelsea FC’s position.”
“We are adamant that we can continue to develop the European game for the benefit of all parties by cooperating with the Premier League, The FA, other European clubs through our strong relationship with the ECA, UEFA, and FIFA.”
Additionally, the Premier League released the following statement: “The Premier League observes today’s judgement in the European Court of Justice dispute involving FIFA, UEFA, and the “European Superleague Company.” We will now thoroughly analyse the consequences of this important verdict for the game.
The Premier League is still opposed to the idea of a “European Super League,” and the ruling does not support it.
Supporters are essential to the game and have often stated that they oppose a “breakaway” competition that breaks the connection between football in the United States and Europe.
“The Premier League reaffirms its dedication to the unambiguous open competition principles that serve as the foundation for both domestic and international club competitions.”
Football is a sport that thrives on rivalries and traditions that come from setting out weekends for domestic football, as well as the annual merit-based qualification process from domestic leagues and cups to international club championships.
The Premier League Owners’ Charter, which was unveiled in June 2022 and intends to increase the League’s overall strength and competitiveness for the benefit of the larger game, is based on these ideals.
The Premier League and other football organisations have reinforced their regulations and oversight in this domain since 2021.
“The Premier League will maintain a constructive and transparent communication channel with all pertinent football stakeholders regarding the optimal measures to safeguard and improve the mutually reinforcing equilibrium between club football on the domestic and international fronts.”
“Manchester City Football Club confirmed in 2021 that it had formally enacted the procedures to withdraw from the group developing plans for a European Super League,” the Premier League champions Manchester City said in a statement.
“Our stance has not altered.” We are still dedicated to upholding the principles of European football, and we’ll keep cooperating with other clubs via the ECA and taking part in UEFA events.
