UEFA President says players who play in European Super League will be banned from World Cup & Euros

UEFA to ban ESL players

The president of UEFA has conducted a press conference in which he told the media that players who take part in the proposed European Super League will be banned from international football.

This would mean players hoping to compete at this summer’s European Championships, the World Cup next summer and any beyond would be unable to do so.

“The players that will play in the Super League will be banned from playing in the World Cup and Euros. They will not be allowed play for their national teams,” said Ceferin.

UEFA has reacted strongly to the proposed European Super League put forward by 12 of the world’s leading European clubs.

Ceferin also criticised Super League vice-president and former ECA president Andrea Agnelli.

UEFA approve Champions League reform

Despite all of the chaos caused by the announcement of the 12 Founding Clubs of the European Super League proposal, UEFA has continued its announcement and approval of the revamped Champions League.

The new system coming into place in 2024 will see a change to the current group stage and knockout system, becoming a tournament which begins with a Swiss League style and expands the competition from 32 to 36 teams.

Teams will play five home games and 5 away games in a league containing the 36 sides and the top 8 sides will progress automatically to the knockout round.

Those placed from 9th to 24th will then have to play a qualification round to see which final 8 teams will join the last 16.

From there, it will be a straight knockout competition, identical to how the current system plays out.

However, whether or not this can go ahead and whether the Super League clubs are in it, remains to be seen.
