I'm halfway begging them to gently caress off and go to a league i can ignore but tbis isn't the end of it and it'll spread because fundamentally once team owners get a whiff of the idea that they can set their league up so that they can lose and still make ridiculous money it'll spread

Was going to ask about Juve but nvm

It sucks and Iíve already read letters by three of the English clubsí supporters trusts/official fan clubs (the Manchester City one mustíve come out hot because it is very poorly worded). None are for it.

UEFA and FIFA have already started waving big potential penalties around, so lord knows.

i'm surprised PSG aren't involved but then again they automatically get in the CL regardless so maybe they don't actually care either way

PSG's owners have a lot of Champions League TV rights through beIN Sports, and presumably none of this new league's rights

Moreover, they actually very likely can't join due to the 50+1 rule and it'd be an ugly fight to get any fan shares on board to agree to joining the ESL.

The only clubs that havenít withdrawn are the Spanish ones and Juventus lol

Also Amazon put out a statement that they werenít going to broadcast any of the games earlier today and that there was no deal in place. Just an absolute disaster from start to (soon to be) end. You love to see it.

To be fair, really loving funny for the ESL group to think they were going to get a deal with a broadcaster that already has a Champions League deal.
