Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona have had their legal disciplinary proceedings against them for their involvement in the breakaway European Super League suspended by UEFA.
According to a statement made by the regulatory organisation, UEFA has agreed to halt legal action against the trio temporarily.
Only Juventus, Real Madrid, and Barcelona remained in the ESL out of the original 12 founding members. If the trio continues to promote a European Super League idea, UEFA has threatened them with severe penalties, including a ban from the UEFA Champions League.
UEFA also underlined in their statement that they are still dissatisfied with Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus’ Super League idea and may take action shortly.
UEFA believes Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus have broken UEFA’s regulatory framework by endorsing the European Super League, which will eventually lead to disciplinary action.
On Wednesday, the six Premier League clubs that had joined the ESL stated that their participation in the breakaway league was incorrect. The teams accepted their £22 million punishment in a joint statement made by the English FA, which will improve grassroots football in the country.
The teams also agreed that any future similar behaviour would result in a 30-point deduction and a £25 million fine.
