12 major clubs own league: a threat to club football?


Among the clubs forming the new league are 12 from England (Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham), three from Spain (Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atletico Madrid), and three from Italy (Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan).


The 12 big clubs of England, Italy, and Spain have decided to form a separate league called 'European Super League' which is facing severe criticism.


Club football plays a key role in the world of football. While the national teams' FIFA World Cup and their own cups on different continents are held every four years, the domestic leagues, which run for nine to 10 months each year, support and nurture the structure of football.


These are the clubs that pay crores of rupees a week to the superstar footballer, so club football is more important than international football.


Among the clubs forming the new league are 12 from England (Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham), three from Spain (Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Atletico Madrid), and three from Italy (Juventus, AC Milan, Inter Milan).


These clubs have been sharply criticized not only by their respective countries' football associations, the European Football Association and FIFA but also by their fans, former players, and even British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.


What is the European Super League?


In the current football system, each country has its own league in which 18 to 20 teams participate and the first three or four ranked teams participate in the UEFA Champions League next year.


The top teams in Europe compete in this Champions League, which lasts for eight to nine months, and the winning team is declared the winner of continental Europe.


The UEFA Champions League is managed by the European Football Association (UEFA) and millions of dollars are paid to different teams through the league based on their performance.


When Liverpool won the Champions League in 2018-19, it was estimated that he was paid more than 110 110 million.


The European Super League has been introduced as an alternative to the Champions League system. The new proposed league is being managed by a committee of 12 clubs and is being financed by renowned US bank JP Morgan.


The league is valued at چھ 6 billion, of which the 12 clubs will receive 43 435 million each for participating in the league alone, which is four times more than the UEFA Champions League.


How can the European Super League affect the football system?


The UEFA Champions League is a league in which European teams can participate, but the way to participate is transparent and on merit. Each team has the opportunity to improve their performance and win any of the first three or four positions and become part of the league. But the European Super League has decided to change this model


According to the European Super League, the 15 major clubs, of which 12 will include the founding club and three other major clubs, will be included every year as a founding member.


In addition to these 15 clubs, five more clubs should be added every year which will come on the basis of performance in the league of their countries.


Only five clubs will participate in the European Super League on merit, while 32 countries join the UEFA Champions League every year on merit. In this way, the new league will endanger the merit system.


On the other hand, the 12 clubs say that because the Coronavirus has severely damaged football's financial situation, a league with a lot of money will help the club improve its finances as well as the money. Can be used to nurture new talent
