Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Arsenal, Chelsea, Inter, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.

Domestic Leagues and the UEFA have reacted angrily and disappointingly at this new closed competition and have also threatened to ban players who partake in the Super League from other competitions, including the World Cup.

According to the organisers of the competition, here is the format of the new European Super League:

“[There will be] 20 participating clubs, with 15 Founding Clubs and a qualifying mechanism for a further five teams to qualify annually based on achievements in the prior season,” it said.

“[There will be] midweek fixtures, with all participating clubs continuing to compete in their respective national leagues, preserving the traditional domestic match calendar which remains at the heart of the club game.

“[There will be] an August start with clubs participating in two groups of 10, playing home and away fixtures, with the top three in each group automatically qualifying for the quarter-finals. Teams finishing fourth and fifth will then compete in a two-legged play-off for the remaining quarter-final positions. A two-leg knockout format will be used to reach the final at the end of May, which will be staged as a single fixture at a neutral venue.

“As soon as practicable after the start of the men’s competition, a corresponding women’s league will also be launched, helping to advance and develop the women’s game.”

The competition is due to start as soon as possible and if news is believed, clubs who partake are expected to receive funding of up to 3.5 billion Euros. There have been huge kickbacks with many against a competition that goes against what football is about as the competition is closed to less-powerful and rich clubs. Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister, is also against the new tournament.
