FIFA and UEFA suffered a another setback on Thursday when the European Court of Justice ruled in favor of the Super League.

The two football governing bodies cannot misuse their authority, the court said, to prevent the creation of a new league or to prohibit clubs who intend to compete.

“The powers of FIFA and UEFA are not subject to any such criteria. FIFA and UEFA are, therefore, abusing a dominant position. Moreover, given their arbitrary nature, their rules on approval, control and sanctions must be held to be unjustified restrictions on the freedom to provide services,” the statement read in part.

“That does not mean that a competition such as the Super League project must necessarily be approved. The Court does not rule on that specific project in its judgment.”

A22, the Super League’s supporters, have been accused of breaching the law by FIFA and UEFA.

But the European Court of Justice’s decision today has rejected them.

Recall that of the twelve clubs who came together to form the new Super League, only Real Madrid and Barcelona are still in existence.

A number of teams, including Manchester United, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Juventus, AC Milan, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United, were also present at the table but quickly left after their supporters voiced opposition.
