Injunction lifted against Super League trio; UEFA can now pursue legal action

A new judge in Madrid has lifted the injunction which prevented UEFA from taking action against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus. The three breakaway clubs have insisted that the Super League plans are still alive, and are no longer protected. 

However, it is unlikely that the governing body of European football would pursue any legal action at this stage. The European Court of Justice case is yet to be heard, and will decide whether the Super League is protected by EU law or otherwise. 

UEFA’s injunction against rebel Super League trio lifted 

‘UEFA has today received the order of the Madrid court, lifting the precautionary measures in their entirety,’ UEFA said in a statement.


‘UEFA welcomes this decision and is considering its implications. UEFA will not be making any further comment for the time being.’ 

Last year, Judge Manuel Ruiz de Lara had sided with the Super League and had asked for them to have no legal action while the ECJ case is still active. It has been a year since the Super League plans were started, and seemingly stopped. 

But, now that the injunction has been lifted by a different judge, the three clubs are no longer protected by the law. Interestingly, the Champions League is set to undergo a similar reform to the Super League, with a ‘historic coefficient’ coming into play. As a result, we could be left with the same end product despite the original plans being scrapped due to widespread protests.
