FIFA has spoken firmly about the possible arrival of a Super League, a top competition with the largest clubs in Europe.

Clubs and players participating in the Super League will be banned from participating in FIFA competitions and tournaments organized by UEFA and other confederations.

The World Football Association emphasized in a statement on Thursday that the Super League will not be recognized by FIFA and the other continental confederations.

This makes participation in, among other things, World and European Championships for players of the Super League clubs impossible.

In 2018 rumors for the first time came out about organizing a top European competition, which should replace the Champions League.

At the time there was speculation about Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, ​​Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan, Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Olympique Marseille, Internazionale and AS Roma. as initiators.

The arrival of a Super League should bring the European top clubs even more money than the Champions League does now.

Many fans do not like a new top competition, because it would make the national competitions less attractive.

UEFA boss Aleksander Ceferin expressed his criticism of the plan last month.

"It's an idea, a wish of people who don't care about the rest of the football clubs. They only look at today and not tomorrow."
