European Super League – UEFA Champions League: FC Barcelona, Juventus & Real Madrid were among the 12 “founding” members of the breakaway league, which later collapsed.
According to the BBC Sport, The trio have refused to renounce the project – but still UEFA will not proceed against them legally.
Uefa says it is now “as if the proceedings had never been opened” as quoted by the BBC.
“The Uefa Appeals Body has declared today the proceedings null and void,” a statement read.
European football’s governing body has also said it will not yet collect the goodwill payments agreed with the other nine Super League clubs – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham plus Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan and AC Milan. The English clubs had agreed a combined payment of £22m in June.
Why has the legal fight stopped?
