The soccer Super League is facing tough opposition from Europe as the competition’s organizers work to get it off the ground. France has sought support from the European Union for a joint declaration by member countries to ensure a link between national and European competitions. This move, according to POLITICO, has been signed by all EU members except Spain. The French government is now pushing the European Commission to draft legislation that solidifies this link.

The French memorandum goes further than any previous EU statement, explicitly addressing the Super League. A22 Sports Management, the promoter company, has been working to shape its project since a ruling by the Court of Justice of the EU in December last year opened the door to its plans. The French push to legislate the elimination of the Super League comes as UEFA, European football’s governing body, prepares to host its Congress in Paris.

The EU has been against the Super League for years, and the French document urges the Commission to reflect on appropriate ways to implement the 2021 Council Resolution on safeguarding the openness of competitions, sporting merit, solidarity, and values in sport. A22’s years-long attempt to create a contender for the UEFA Champions League has caused controversy in European football and has resurfaced at the end of last week.
