European Super League

EDM number 1821 in 2017-19, proposed by Graham Jones on 12/11/2018.

That this House acknowledges recent reports in Die Spiegel newspaper that association football clubs in the UK are planning to break away from UEFA Champions League and form a new group that would be known as the European Super League; expresses concern at these plans and the damaging effect it could have on football across the UK, particularly grassroots football; notes this proposal is based on ongoing greed by the top clubs; opposes such changes and the underhand manner in which the European Super League clubs have discussed this issue; and calls on the Government along with the Football Association, the Premier League and the English Football League to take the necessary measures to prevent such an initiative.

This motion has been signed by a total of 9 MPs.
