World football’s governing body FIFA have responded after Chelsea and 11 other clubs confirmed the creation of the European Super League.

The other 11 clubs are Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Liverpool, Juventus, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and AC Milan.

FIFA’s statement read: “FIFA wishes to clarify that it stands firm in favour of solidarity in football and an equitable redistribution model which can help develop football as a sport, particularly at the global level, since the development of global football is the primary mission of FIFA.

“In our view, and in accordance with our statutes, any football competition, whether national, regional or global, should always reflect the core principles of solidarity, inclusivity, integrity and equitable financial redistribution .

“Moreover, the governing bodies of football should employ all lawful, sporting and diplomatic means to ensure this remains the case.

“Against this background, FIFA can only express its disapproval to a “closed European breakaway league” outside of the international football structures and not respecting the aforementioned principles.

“FIFA always stands for unity in world football and calls on all parties involved in heated discussions to engage in calm, constructive and balanced dialogue for the good of the game and in the spirit of solidarity and fair play.

“FIFA will, of course, do whatever is necessary to contribute to a harmonised way forward in the overall interests of football.”
