This is in regards to the European new super league. By no means this is a done deal. In fact this is more like an attempt to take over U.E.F.A.'s and F.I.F.A.'s control of the game.
How did this start? No it did not start with the the chinese virus doing major financial damages to pro clubs around the world.
It started the following way:
The glazers that own the Tampa Bay Bucaneers took control of Manchester United in 2005.
kronke that owns the Rams and multiple MLS teams took control of Arsenal in 2011
daniel levy took control of Tottenham in 2001. The club got a new stadium built with a signed contract to host nfl games and possibly a team relocated there.
Chelsea is owned by abramovich a mega Russian billionaire
The agnelli family that owns the Fiat empire but also Chrysler has close ties with American funding equities.
Milan used to be chinese owned now it is owned by the elliott management corporation
Inter Milan just in February announced that they contacted goldman sachs to raise $200M…what did you think they did this?
Atletico Madrid have been owned (51%)by the Gil Marin family for decades. idan ofer owns 30%. His company is actively active in the U.S. with holdings on the N.Y.S.E.
Barcelona is owned by the fans same with Real Madrid…with some exceptions.
jpmorgan is financing this “want to be” new league with right now a $6B pot.
Make no mistakes friends this is by far the biggest worldwide sports news in our lifetime.
All of these clubs are 100 years old or more.
The sports pyramid system that is used around the world does not exist in America.
In a nutshell your sporting exploits get you a chance to win the ultimate prize.
Let say you start a club today. You then start in the lowest leagues.
You win the lowest league then you are promoted to the next level and so forth until you play in the highest league of a given country. You do not do well (finish in the bottom three) you are then relegated.
To qualify to play in the European Champions league you need to win your country’s league or finish in the top three or four of that same country’s league.
What these top clubs want to do is do away with the Pyramid, sports merit to get qualify for the European Champions League. Right now Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham are not in their country’s top four. So on sports merits alone they would not qualify if their league ended today.
By not participating they lose $10M’s.
90% of worldwide soccer fans is against this concept. The MLS for example is an oxymoron. They should not be allowed to play in International competition.
Now the “franchise/nfl” concept is driven for one unique reason. FINANCIAL control.
The same nfl owners that own quite a few of these clubs had this in mind from the very beginning when they financially took control of these clubs.
Will this franchise league even starts?
Both parties had agreed for a European Champions League reform this past Friday. So these 12 clubs are trying a power play.
They are thinking that the football governing bodies of F.I.F.A., U.E.F.A. and the respective countries will fold to them.
The European Nations Championship is this Summer. The 2022 World Cup is next year. Why does this matter?
The governing bodies have told that if the 12 clubs players participate they won’t be able to participate in these competitions and respective league.
The 12 clubs came out today to “gauge” waht they are up against. Some might say it is no longer a poker game. I am not so sure. What I can foresee are “gifts” financial gifts given to all that might disagree. I am thinking out loud but it is the most plausible. Here is what the nfl owners do not have a clue and never did.
Fans will never permit this new league. Players will be followed to their homes if they participate in this. The nfl owners have long thought that they could “install” this system. Nobody wants it.
Time will tell but this is indeed the darkest hour for the World’s game.
The P5 franchise league ALREADY EXISTS It is called the cfp. The cartel will eventually expand it but at the detriment of the G5’s again…Why on earth does the term G5 even exist? Do any of you even ask that to yourself? It is a franchise league without (not yet) the stamped label.
