UEFA has released a new statement to condemn the Super League: ‘We are football, they are not.’

The 45th Ordinary UEFA Congress was held today in Montreux today and the European football governing body released a new statement against the Super League that had been announced on Sunday.

“The 55 member associations and participants in the UEFA Congress condemn the declaration of a so- called “Super League.” The UEFA Congress is adamant that the closed “Super League” goes against the very concept of what it is to be European: unified, open, supportive, and principled on sporting values,” the statement reads.

“UEFA and its member associations believe in a truly European model that is founded on open competitions, solidarity and redistribution to ensure the sustainability and development of the game for the benefit of all and the promotion of European values and social outcomes.

“The conspirator clubs have obviously failed to see that their status today was not achieved in isolation, but rather was part of a dynamic European system where big, medium and small clubs have all contributed to the successes and losses of everyone.

“It is an affront to European values and sporting merit for them to assume they are entitled to “separate” and lay claim to the legacy that everyone built.

“UEFA, its member associations and all those who love football stand firm and will strongly resist and fight against this move by these clubs’ owners and their backers to the fullest extent possible.

“We know, morally, what is at stake and will protect football from a selfish clan who care nothing for the game. We are European football. They are not.”

Real Madrid and Super League President Florentino Perez said last night the Super League would “save football” as clubs lost over €5 billion due to the COVID pandemic.

Uefa President Ceferin insisted UEFA “needs stories like Atalanta” during today’s speech.
