The European Football Association “UEFA” announced, in an official statement, on its website, the “temporary suspension” of the disciplinary measures against Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Twelve European clubs had announced the establishment of the so-called European Super League, before the project collapsed after the withdrawal of most of the clubs, with the exception of the trio Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus.
The statement read: “Following the initiation of disciplinary proceedings against Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid for a possible violation of the UEFA legal framework in relation to the so-called Super League project, the UEFA Appeals Body, decided
Suspension of procedures until further notice.
Although UEFA did not provide further details, it all relates to the Madrid court order not to penalize the three clubs, which was submitted to the European Court in
Luxembourg, and was recently reported to the authority.
And if sanctions are imposed on the three clubs, it would contravene the court order, which could mean its members would be persecuted for not cooperating with justice, so UEFA’s plan must now go through an appeal that prevents it from punishing the three clubs.
It is reported that the suspension of sanctions will only apply to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, as the remaining nine clubs who have left the Super League will still have to give up 5% of their European revenue to the European Union as a penalty.
