The International Football Federation (FIFA) opposed the creation of the European Super League, reports TASS.
“FIFA does not approve of plans to create a Super League, as the competition goes beyond international football structures,” the organization said in a statement.
Earlier, 12 top European clubs announced the creation of a new tournament. Among them, six English, three Spanish and three Italian clubs are English Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, Spanish Barcelona, Atletico and Real Madrid, Italian Milan, Inter and Juventus.
Three more clubs are to join them later. The season should start as soon as possible, matches will be played in the middle of the week, and the founding clubs will run the tournament.
Earlier, the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) found the idea of creating a new Super League in Europe boring.
Last year, there were reports in the media that more than 10 teams from England, France, Germany, Italy and Spain are in talks to become the founders of the European Premier League. The European Premier League could be the richest club competition in the world.
