The European Super League may have stuttered, after the Premier League’s Big Six clubs decided to pull out of the ESL.
The ESL was born out of the need for reforms in football. The ESL had cried out that the Champions League haven’t done enough for clubs, and the ESL will help save clubs financially.
The need for football reforms have been making the rounds, as UEFA has recently revealed a new format that will take place from 2024.
The Premier League has also had discussions for a reform as well, and reports claim that a British Super League could be on the pipeline.
The reform of the Premier League has been a huge discussion point since October’s publication of the Project Big Picture plans drafted by Liverpool and Manchester United.
Premier League chief executive Richard Masters was forced to agree to a “strategic review” of the competition’s future, conceding “the status quo is not an option”, which was conducted by US-owned Boston Consulting and is due to report back in June.
According to The Sun, an enlarged Premier League could include Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino gave his blessing for cross-border leagues when asked about proposals for mergers between Holland and Belgium and Mexico and the MLS.
Infantino said: “If we want teams to play at the highest level around the world we need to have new ideas and we need to see that.
“I am confident the best decisions will be made in that regard but any mergers must be done with respect to the rules.”
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson fought against the ESL, but would be in support of the British Super League if it so happens.
Meanwhile, according to The Sun, one club source said: “Whether or not the Super League was going to happen, we all feel that the Premier League has to be changed and improved.
“It is time we opened it up to Rangers and Celtic. That would make sense for everyone.”
