‘Players will be banned from World Cup and Euros’ – UEFA president Ceferin promises to punish Super League participants

‘Players will be banned from World Cup and Euros’ – UEFA president Ceferin promises to punish Super League participants

Goal – The head of European football’s governing body has insisted the Champions League will continue with or without the founders of the new competition.

UEFA president Alexander Ceferin has promised to punish participants in the Super League and says that any players involved “will be banned from the World Cup and Euros”.

The announcement of a new European competition that would see a number of top clubs break away from the Champions League has been met with fierce opposition over the past 24 hours.

UEFA has now revealed its stance, with Ceferin calling for the football world to rally against the “cynical plan” that is threatening to cause huge division across the continent’s major leagues.

“Players who will play in the teams that might play in the closed league will be banned from the World Cup and Euros.”

Asked if the Champions League will continue without the 12 clubs reportedly founding the Super League, Ceferin responded: “Yes, of course. In Europe, there are many good clubs and devoted fans. You heard the changes already today of the UEFA changes from 2024. We will do it with or without them.”
