Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham all signed up to the doomed European Super League venture and are now paying the price.

The six Premier League clubs that signed up for the doomed European Super League have all been hit with fines.

According to Sky, Manchester United,Chelsea,Liverpool,Arsenal,Manchester City and Tottenham must all pay a combined sum of £20million for their part in the doomed venture.

This equates to just £3.3million per club.

The Premier League's traditional big six were part of the group, along with Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan from Italy and Real Madrid,Barcelona and Atletico Madrid from Spain.

The inception of the league was met with a severe backlash from the footballing world, including protests from fans.

This resulted in the Premier League's big six getting cold feet and just two days later each of the clubs U-turned on their decision.

The European Super League issued a defiant response: "The European Super League is convinced that the current status quo of European football needs to change. We are proposing a new European competition because the existing system does not work.

"Our proposal is aimed at allowing the sport to evolve while generating resources and stability for the full football pyramid, including helping to overcome the financial difficulties experienced by the entire football community as a result of the pandemic.

"It would also provide materially enhanced solidarity payments to all football stakeholders.

"Despite the announced departure of the English clubs, forced to take such decisions due to the pressure put on them, we are convinced our proposal is fully aligned with European law and regulations as was demonstrated today by a court decision to protect the Super League from third party actions.

"Given the current circumstances, we shall reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project, always having in mind our goals of offering fans the best experience possible while enhancing solidarity payments for the entire football community."

European Super League president Florentino Perez also warned that the contracts the 12 clubs signed were "binding" and suggested fines could be issued to teams that U-turns.

However, the report adds that if any of the six sign up for a similar venture in the future then they could each be hit with a £20million fine and face a 30-point deduction.

The European Super League was proposed in April as a breakaway league for the best clubs on the continent.

A total of 12 clubs joined the controversial midweek competition that did not have the backing of any of the football regulators.

No, that's not £20m each, that's between them.

Absolute joke

Takes the absolute piss, not even a punishment at all.
I guess they had to work within the legal framework that already existed. Any future attempts with be met with a £25million fine & a 30 point deduction.

That’s a couple of months wages for certain players at those clubs

should have hit them with multi million pound fines and handed it down to lower league clubs that are struggling atm
