The establishing clubs will get a portion of €3.5bn “to help their foundation speculation plans and to counterbalance the effect of the Coronavirus pandemic,” ESL coordinators said.
Juventus administrator and bad habit director of the ESL Andrea Agnelli said the 12 clubs had “meet up at this crucial point in time, empowering European rivalry to be changed, putting the game we love on an economical balance for the drawn out future”.
While the enormous clubs from Britain’s Chief Group, Spain’s La Liga and Italy’s Serie A have joined, France and Germany’s top clubs have so far chose not to.
How might it function?
The European Super Alliance will have 20 taking part clubs – 15 establishing ones with five different clubs qualifying each season.
The clubs will play in another midweek rivalry with groups proceeding to contend in their separate public alliances, the ESL was quick to push.
Under the proposition, the ESL 20-group class would be part into two gatherings of 10, playing each other home and away.
The best three in each gathering would fit the bill for the quarter-finals, with the groups in fourth and fifth playing a two-legged play-off for the two leftover spots.
From that point on, it would have a similar two-leg knockout configuration utilized in the Bosses Group, with a last in May at a nonpartisan scene.
The group intends to dispatch “when practicable”.
