To ask Her Majesty's Government what sanctions, if any, they are considering in response to the potential involvement of English football clubs in the proposed European Super League.
27 April 2021
The Government has been vocal in its opposition to the European Super League. The Secretary of State was therefore glad to see the withdrawal of all English teams from the project, which came after the Government had met with multiple stakeholders on the proposals, including The Football Association and Premier League.
The football authorities are best placed to take action on such proposals in the first instance, but the Government continues to stand ready to act if needed.
This is the right result for football fans, clubs and communities across the country. However, these events have demonstrated that now is the right time to launch the fan-led review of football governance which will have fan interests at its heart.
