The Super League: All you need to know

12 big European clubs have announced the creation of “The Super League”, a competition that can replace the Champions League and be the start of a historical change in the football world.

Here’s all you need to know about the competition.

Teams:

The league will be consisted of 20 clubs:

15 permanent clubs: Juventus, Milan, Inter, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsa, and 3 other clubs that are yet to join (most likely Bayern, BVB and PSG).

5 annual qualifiers, who will qualify to the league each year, in a way that isn’t announced yet.

System:

The league will consist of 2 groups:

10 teams per group, all teams will play home and away fixtures against each other, with the top 3 of each group qualifying to the next round.

4th and 5th of each group will play against each other for a qualification spot.

So, 8 teams will qualify for a single-match knockout tournament, that will be played in one neutral venue each year, like what happened with the Champions League in 2019-2020.

Games will be played midweek to not intervene with the domestic leagues games: all clubs will keep playing on their domestic leagues.

Management:

Florentino Perez (Real Madrid) will be the president of the league, with Andrea Agnelli (Juventus) as vice-president and Joel Glazer (Manchester United) as vice-president number 2.

Finances:

Founder clubs will receive €3.5 billion, “to support their infrastructure and offset the impact of the COVID pandemic.”
