European Super League: UEFA dropping legal action against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus

UEFA has decided to drop legal action against three clubs that remain committed to the European Super League.
UEFA declared that proceedings against Real Madrid, Juventus, and Barcelona were null and void.

Three clubs argued that UEFA's attempt at punishing them for setting up a breakaway League was contrary to European competition law.

UEFA claims that it is "as if the proceedings never opened".

UEFA will also contact other clubs involved in the attempted splitaway to inform them that they no longer have to pay the penalties imposed for setting up the ESL in April.

These clubs include Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool as well as Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Atletico Madrid. Inter Milan is also included.

The nine clubs were fined a total of 15m each and had five percent of their UEFA competitions revenue withheld for one season.

UEFA has rescinded its legal action in Spain because it respects the Spanish judicial system and believes that it is not in the best interests of its members or theirs to drag it out through the courts.

UEFA will do everything possible to prevent a breakaway league ever being formed. It reserves the right not to reopen legal proceedings if it is resurrected.
