Super League: European Court to Determine Future of Football Today

Today, the European Court is set to rule on the appeal launched by the European Super League against UEFA. This marks a return to the courtrooms a year after General Advocacy Santos sided with UEFA, underscoring the “specificity of sport” that allows the Nyon-based body to manage football while also defending the inclusivity of the European sports model. Santos’ view was followed closely by comments from Advocate Szpunar, who cast some doubts concerning the legitimacy of UEFA’s rules on youth academies.

The decision now lies with the European Court, which must decide whether to uphold the stance of the Advocacy or overturn it.

As reported by the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, this may not be the final chapter, as the European Court’s verdict could potentially be inconclusive. The possible scenarios range from worst-case to the ideal, depending on the stance of the supporters and opponents. The truth will out by late morning.
