The introduction of the European Super League caused a sensation in the football world. Clubs that had joined it were discussed in all sports news articles.
However, joy has turned into lots of conflicts and problems for football clubs that supported the competition. Some of them succumbed to panic and decided to quit the newly formed league.

As it was revealed, all the 6 Premier League teams had left the tournament.

Now the European Super League has the aim to revamp the project and make it not so contradictory.
