Spanish Court orders UEFA, FIFA not to stop ESL

Spanish commercial court orders World and European football bodies – UEFA and FIFA should not prevent 12 of the continent’s most important clubs from forming a separatist ESL – European Super League, in a preliminary ruling on Tuesday. FIFA and UEFA have not immediately commented on the case, which is likely to mark the beginning of a long legal battle over the proposed league, which threatens to overturn the long-standing order of elite football in Europe.

It was not immediately clear what authority was given by the Madrid court to the authority hearing the corporate disputes over football bodies in Switzerland.

The Spanish court ruled in a ruling seen by Reuters that FIFA, UEFA, and all its affiliated football associations were “required to restrict, limit the construction of the ESL – European Super League or to improve the situation in any way”. UEFA also warned not to allow any player or manager to participate. 

The Super League project is led by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, and the company that was set up to lead the competition is based in Madrid. The company has ordered a Spanish court to stop football regulators from taking action against its new league.

The judge applied for a preliminary injunction on FIFA and UEFA at least during the trial, which could take several months in Spain. Court intervention came after both UEFA and FIFA warned that they would ban clubs and players competing in the new league, which was set to rival the European Football Club established in the UEFA Champions League.

In a letter seen by Reuters on Monday to FIFA President Gianni Infantino and UEFA President Alexander Ceferin, “European Super League Company SL” said it was taking legal action to protect its new business.

The letter stated that the Super League had filed motives in several unnamed courts “to ensure the smooth establishment and operation of the competition in accordance with various laws”.

Three of the 12 separatist clubs are located in Spain – Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, and Barcelona. The other nine are located in England and Italy.
