The European football governing body, UEFA, has begun the process of reintegration of nine of the 12 clubs which were involved in the now defunct “Super League” project.
UEFA said that the nine clubs had “acknowledge and accept” that the Super League project was a mistake and had apologised to fans, national associations, national leagues, fellow European clubs and UEFA.
UEFA further said that the clubs had agreed to “have substantial fines imposed if they seek to play in unauthorised competitions, i.e 100m Euros, or if they breach any other commitment, they have entered into in the Club Commitment Declaration, i.e. 50m Euros”.
The nine clubs are, Arsenal, AC Milan, Chelsea, Atlético Madrid, Inter Milan, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Meanwhile, UEFA is likely to start disciplinary process against the remaining three clubs like FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus for not formally renouncing The Super League.
That disciplinary process could encompass a ban from UEFA’s premier competition, the Champions League.
