– Chelsea and 11 other clubs announced their intention to establish European Super League
– No fewer than 12 elite clubs in Europe announced they want a breakaway competition
– The Blues have however indicated their willingness to withdraw from the proposed competition
Chelsea are preparing documentation to request their withdrawal from the European Super League, BBC Sport reports.
No fewer than 12 football clubs who announced their breakaway competition have left their positions at the UEFA and the European Clubs Association (ECA).
The clubs consist of Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona, Manchester United, Juventus, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and AC Milan.
Such idea has received widespread condemnation and UEFA has vowed to use “all measures” possible to stop the “cynical project”.
Around 1,000 fans gathered outside Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge home ground before their game against Brighton on Tuesday to protest their involvement.
