UEFA confirmed on Wednesday that it has imposed disciplinary actions on the three clubs that insist on the Superliga project, Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona.
The rebellious trio may be banned from use in future versions of the UEFA Champions League or Europa League and be fined for refusing to abandon a tournament that collapsed only 48 hours after its launch last month.
The other 9 founding clubs-6 in England, 2 in Italy, and 1 in Spain-have reached an agreement to guarantee their continued participation in UEFA competitions and donate the money to UEFA charities.
UEFA stated that the disciplinary team’s investigation will point out that “it is related to the so-called Super League project and may violate UEFA’s legal framework…”.
The regulations of the European football governing body include the prohibition of the formation of clubs or leagues without UEFA’s permission or control.
There is no deadline to complete the investigation.
From the appointment of the investigator, it usually takes at least three weeks to file a lawsuit.
Any sanctions imposed by UEFA can be appealed to the Sports Arbitration Court.
