CHAIR COMMENT: European Super League

19 April 2021

DCMS Committee Chair Julian Knight has issued the following comment in response to proposals for a European Super League.

DCMS Committee Chair Julian Knight MP said:

“This is a dark day for football – a deal done behind closed doors apparently with no regard for supporters.

“Though this idea was mooted several months ago, what’s shocking is the speed at which this breakaway league has been announced.

“What’s needed is a fan-led review of football with real teeth and here we have more evidence to strengthen the case for it.

“Football needs a reset, but this is not the way to do it. The interests of community clubs must be put at the heart of any future plans.

“We, the Committee, will be discussing this when we meet tomorrow in a private session.”
