UEFA has responded to the news of the European Super League with president Alexander Ceferin promising to punish participants in the Super League and says that any players involved “will be banned from the World Cup and Euros”.

The announcement of a new European competition that would see a number of top clubs break away from the Champions League has been met with fierce opposition over the past 24 hours.

UEFA has now revealed its stance, with Ceferin calling for the football world to rally against the “cynical plan” that is threatening to cause huge division across the continent’s major leagues.

Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that they will not be one of the clubs joining the proposed Super League, a big win for UEFA and the European Clubs Association.

Plans for the formation of a new European Super League were unveiled on Sunday, with 12 founding clubs having already signed up for the competition which has been designed to rival the current Champions League.

It has been reported that three more clubs will soon be added to the founders list, with a further five teams set to be granted entry if they meet certain qualification requirements – but Dortmund have distanced themselves from the project.
