Juventus Pull Out of European Super League and Seek Readmission to ECA

Juventus has officially pulled out of the European Super League initiative and now seeks to rejoin the European Club Association.

Initially, Juventus was among a dozen elite European clubs that united to create a breakaway Super League in April 2021, causing uproar among fans.

The other founding members included Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Milan, and Inter.

Consequently, these teams were ousted from the ECA due to their involvement in the Super League scheme.

However, faced with vehement backlash from fans and UEFA threats, nine clubs swiftly rescinded their support, leading to the league’s collapse within 72 hours.

Subsequently, these clubs were reinstated in the ECA, and by July 2023, Juventus initiated its withdrawal from the European Super League.

In response, ECA chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi stated, “We are glad that Juventus wants to return to the ECA, emphasizing shared interests and collaboration with all parties.”

Despite this, only Real Madrid and Barcelona remain committed to the Super League concept and have proposed a revised 64-team league format.
