The proposed European Super League which rose and collapsed earlier this year after public fallout but is still in the works after Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Juventus are still standing and pushing forward with it.

It was presented as a lucrative closed league that would have been the solution to the financial problems of football after the coronavirus pandemic dealt football finances worldwide a major blow due to shutting down of football for three months and having no fans in the stadium.

La Liga president Javier Tebas has been a voice against the Super League despite having FC Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid from La Liga at the initial stages. Tebas condemned it as not feasible earlier but has now revealed the extent of the financial damage it will cause the Spanish League.

“It's stupid. It would have fuelled the problems of European football and would not have solved anything. It would have worsened the economic consequences by reducing the income of national competitions. In Spain alone, we would have lost 1.9 billion euros because of the Superleague." Tebas told SoFoot.
