    Soccer News: Plans to revive the European Super League, says the new chief executive, “even the fans will sympathize.”

    A new proposal for a European Super League is in the works, and the splinter tournament’s management company promises that “even fans will be sympathetic to the idea.”

    The launch of the Super League last year failed, with nine of the 12 founding clubs quickly pulling out due to pressure from fans, media and players.

    However, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus remained in power.

    Eighteen months later, A22 Sports Management – the company that represents Super League clubs – is now planning to relaunch offers.

    Bernd Reichart, head of the media, was appointed head of plans.

    He told the Financial Times: “We want to reach out to stakeholders in the European football community and expand on that vision.

    “Even the fans will be sympathetic to this idea. This is a clean slate. The format will never be an obstacle.”

    Reichart promised that the original proposal would be amended to have 12 teams become permanent members of the Super League, with other clubs invited on merit.

    “There is a reassessment going on – there is a clearly stated transition to an open format and the issue of permanent membership is out of the question,” Reichart said, echoing Barcelona president Joan Laporta, who urged the Super League not to be a closed shop. .

    “We want to see if there is a broader consensus on the challenges facing European football.”

    Reichart has set his sights on a launch in the 2024–25 season, adding, “If fundamental changes are coming, we want to be ready.”
