UEFA announced that the legal case they opened in May against Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus has been dropped.
“Following the stay of proceedings against FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF, in the matter related to a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework in connection with the so called ‘Super League’, the UEFA Appeals Body has declared today the proceedings null and void, as if the proceedings had never been opened.” read UEFA’s statement.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, along with nine other clubs from England, Italy and Spain announced the formation of a breakaway league in April 2021. The idea had to be abandoned soon after, amid backlash from fans, and UEFA subsequently began legal proceedings against the only three clubs(Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus) who refused to back out of the European Super League.
UEFA also said in the same statement that the nine other clubs(Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Atletico Madrid) won’t have to pay a fine anymore.
This was followed by another statement, in which UEFA also confirmed that they have filed a motion for the withdrawal of a Madrid judge, claiming bias towards the three clubs.
