European Club Association released the statement at around a similar time the continent's biggest clubs were meant to announce their participation in the Super League, APA-Sport reports citing ECA website.

The report reads:

"In light of today’s reports on the subject of a so-called breakaway league, ECA as the body representing 246 leading clubs across Europe, reiterates its stated commitment to working on developing the UEFA Club Competitions (UCCs) model with UEFA for the cycle beginning 2024 and that a ‘closed super league model’ to which media articles refer would be strongly opposed by ECA."
