The idea of a European Super League has been rumored for years. But on Sunday those rumors became reality when twelve of Europe’s top clubs announced they were launching a breakaway Super League.
AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Internazionale, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have all joined as founding clubs.
Real Madrid president Florentino Perez said:
“We will help football at every level and take it to its rightful place in the world. Football is the only global sport in the world with more than four billion fans and our responsibility as big clubs is to respond to their desires.”
