The European Superleague is once again in the headlines, as the tournament’s new format was confirmed earlier this week. Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus are the three driving forces behind the original plans for the competition, with sports management company A22 now in charge. However, tensions between La Liga and Spain’s two biggest teams have remained high ever since the Superleague was first announced in 2021.
The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, has had several public spats with Florentino Perez and Juan Laporta, the presidents of Real Madrid and Barcelona, respectively. Now, according to a report by Vozpopuli, Tebas is trying to exclude officials from both clubs from future meetings surrounding the future of La Liga. This move would prevent either club from having a say in matters going forward, and it’s unclear whether it will have any effect on the clubs’ determination to join the Superleague.
Despite tensions, Barcelona and Real Madrid remain determined to join the European Superleague, which could escalate friction between the two clubs and the league. Reports claim that relations between them have reached an all-time low, and it remains unknown how the situation will unfold.
Regardless of the outcome, the return of the European Superleague is sure to cause a stir in the world of soccer, with fans and experts alike eagerly awaiting further developments. The competition promises to bring together some of the biggest and most successful clubs in Europe, and it’s sure to be an exciting time for soccer fans everywhere.
