The European Super League has been officially announced on Sunday 18th April and some big European clubs have joined the European Super League forming a breakaway league from the European Club Association.
UEFA president Aleksander Čeferin and also the Premier League CEO Richard Masters are both against this proposed European Super League.
UEFA and Premier League have blasted plans that there would be bans for clubs and insisting players who participates in the Super League will be banned from all other competitions at domestic, European and even the World Cup which would prevent them from representing their national teams.
AC Milan, Arsenal FC, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea FC, FC Barcelona, FC Internazionale Milano, Juventus FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid CF and Tottenham Hotspur have all joined as Founding Clubs.
Premier League will meet on Tuesday without Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham who have agreed to join a breakaway European Super League.
The meeting held virtually by the CEO Richard Masters will only be attended by the 14 Premier League clubs who are not involved in the newly-announced league.
FIFA and the European Club Association (ECA) have also criticised the formation of a breakaway competition.
