UEFA have confirmed in a statement that it has begun disciplinary proceedings against the three clubs still involved in the European Super League project – Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus .

European football’s governing body released a statement confirming the opening of the proceedings against the three clubs due to their failure to remove themselves from the European Super League plans.

The statement read: “Following an investigation conducted by UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project, disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Real Madrid CF, FC Barcelona and Juventus FC for a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework. Further information will be made available in due course”

Nine of the 12 founders of the proposed breakaway league conceded defeat to UEFA within days of the project’s official announcement. These clubs – which include the ‘big six’ Premier League clubs – signed a commitment declaration with UEFA soon after the breakaway league fell apart.

Barcelona, Juventus, and Real Madrid now face potential bans from European competition. A two-year expulsion from UEFA competitions is reportedly. the maximum available punishment. UEFA appears determined to heavily punish these clubs for their persistence with the ESL idea.
