Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

UEFA holds crisis meeting after breakaway Super League launched

0

European soccer’s governing body UEFA held a crisis meeting on Monday, hours after 12 of the continent’s leading clubs shocked the football world by announcing the formation of a breakaway Super League.

The U.S. investment bank JP Morgan confirmed to Reuters that it is financing the new league and is a rival to UEFA’s Champions League.

Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham from England, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid from Spain and Italy’s Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan form the breakaway group.

The bitter battle entered a new phase with a letter sent by the 12 clubs to UEFA on Monday in which they said they would take legal steps to protect their interests.

The breakaway clubs will be guaranteed annual places in the competition — in contrast to the current UEFA Champions League, which requires teams to qualify via their domestic leagues.

New format

Meanwhile, UEFA on Monday confirmed that a new format for the Champions League will be introduced from 2024 with the number of clubs in the group stage increasing from 32 to 36 and all clubs brought together into one pool instead of the current system of four-team groups. This was approved at an executive committee meeting in Switzerland.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin reiterated that clubs and players involved in the proposed breakaway league could be banned “as soon as possible” from all of its competitions and the World Cup.

The Super League letter meanwhile also urged FIFA and UEFA to agree to talks and said it wanted the breakaway league to exist alongside current European club competitions.

Top clubs missing

Qatari-owned Paris St Germain and European champion Bayern Munich, which is majority-owned by the fans, have not signed up to the plans, meaning that France and Germany are not represented in the Super League as things stand.
