Super League: Soccer fans, Boris Johnson react as major European clubs abandon project

Global News published this video item, entitled “Super League: Soccer fans, Boris Johnson react as major European clubs abandon project” – below is their description.

Soccer fans largely welcomed the news that the European Super League project was collapsing on Wednesday morning, after the six English teams all said they were pulling out.

Twelve of Europe’s leading soccer clubs from England, Italy and Spain announced a breakaway league on Sunday, but after 48 hours of massive pressure from fans, politicians and even British royals, the six English clubs involved abandoned the idea on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson also hailed the decision, saying “the announcement was the right result for football fans, for clubs and communities across the country.”

The founding members of the league were English clubs Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur, Italy’s Juventus, Inter and AC Milan, and Spain’s Real Madrid, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
