Super League: Ceferin asks EU court to amend the ruling

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) has submitted a request to the European Court of Justice (CJEU) to modify its press release concerning the landmark ruling on the Super League case against UEFA and FIFA’s monopoly, according to details published in British newspaper, The Times. UEFA believes the original language used in the announcement was too generous and could be misconstrued in media coverage.

The letter to the CJEU expressed UEFA’s concerns, stating that while press releases don’t bind the Court, they serve as the center of media attention in high-profile cases. Such attention has a consequential impact on UEFA’s public perception and reputation, given the severity of the matter.

Moreover, UEFA noted that the press releases tend to remain on the court’s website for an extended period, drawing additional attention to high-profile cases, an effective objective of the releases.

The request from UEFA insisted on certain changes to ensure that “the press release is altered to accurately reflect the court’s ruling.”

It’s crucial to remember that the ongoing battle between UEFA and the proposed Super League has been closely followed by football fans, media, and governing bodies. Its outcome is likely to have far-reaching implications for the future of European football.
