The FA have issued a statement following the latest news on the European Super League

Tuesday 20 Apr 2021

We welcome the news that some of the clubs have decided to abandon the plans for the European Super League, which threatened the whole football pyramid.

English football has a proud history based on opportunity for all clubs and the game has been unanimous in its disapproval of a closed league.

It was a proposition that, by design, could have divided our game; but instead, it has unified us all.

We would like to thank the fans, in particular, for their influential and unequivocal voice during this time, holding true the guiding principles of football. It is a powerful reminder that the game is, and always will be, for fans.

We would also like to thank the Prime Minister, Secretary of State and Sports Minister for their unwavering and critical support against these plans.
