The Italian Football Federation has reportedly laid a plan to prohibit Serie A clubs from joining the European Super League.
The ESL controversy emerged to light in April 2021 when twelve top European clubs announced the project, including Inter Milan.
However, the Nerazzurri and eight others backtracked in the next 48 hours amidst a major political and public backlash.
Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona remained as the solitary rebels, sparking a series of legal battles between the trio and UEFA.
The Super League supporters won a significant round last week. The European Court of Justice ruled that UEFA and FIFA have abused their powers by trying to prohibit the controversial competition.
Nevertheless, a host of clubs and federations around Europe have since voiced their support for UEFA, refuting the notion of the Super League.
So according to FcInter1908, the FIGC has introduced an anti-Super League clause and will force all Serie A clubs to sign it.
The FIGC Will Force Serie A Clubs To Pen A Clause Vowing Not To Take Part In The Super League
Those who do not sign the document won’t receive admission to Serie A next season, as the source explains.
The newly-implemented rule states the following:
“The clubs must, by the peremptory deadline of 4 June 2024, comply with the following requirement: Deposit the application for admission to the 2024/2025 Serie A campaign through a certified email, containing the request to grant the National License and the commitment not to participate in competitions organized by private associations not recognized by FIFA, UEFA and the FIGC.”
This regulation will certainly prompt major debate from a legal standpoint. We shall see how the clubs will react to the federation’s request.
