Manchester United have stood down from the European Club Association (ECA) and club executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has stepped down from his UEFA roles.
Sky in Italy have confirmed Juventus, AC Milan and Inter Milan have also left the ECA. Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli has also resigned as ECA chairman, a position he held since 2012, and left his post as a member of the UEFA Executive Committee to take up the Super League vice-president role.
The ECA is a body representing the interests of over 200 professional football clubs in UEFA. It is the sole such body recognised by UEFA, and has member clubs in each UEFA member association.

  • The reason they believe they can get away with it is because the teams have become international companies, and are not your local football team anymore. A person from south-east asian or china does not have the same affiliation with a top club than Gavin or Terry who were born into a Man United or Liverpool family. They dont care about the rest of the premier league and the social media follower numbers are proof of that. There is overwhelming evidence of that all over the net. Those people will watch the ECL and they are the reason these owners think they can get through with it. They dont care about the 70/80 million british people who want to watch, when there are 1+ billion chinese and asians and arabs who want to watch. You can call me name, i'm immune to labeling. I speak the harsh truth of culture and globalisation. Btw what the F did you think was going to happen if you sell your club to americans who again, have No affiliation with the sport. It's disgusting and heads should roll. ALL the people involved need to be sacked and punished!

  • Kick all six clubs out of the Premier league NOW. Then replace them with the top clubs in the championship and so on down the leagues 1 and 2 and stop all relegations this season and bring in more teams from the National league. The real fans in this country are the ones who support the smaller clubs not the overpriced so-called big clubs who only think about themselves.

  • I hope they go! The premier league could be reignited like a Phoenix without them, for one referees may be stricter with themselves and better all round without that shadow of top clubs assuming they should have all the decisions. We could re invent the cups and leagues and make them better and fairer without them, never allowing them back. This is honestly in my opinion a gift horse, the only worry we would have is tv finances and them getting them all, but as long as we the fans do our part and not subscribe to watching it we could piss in the beds that these clubs have made and make them sleep in it.

  • He who has ears to hear, let him hear Don’t play games with you’re soul Jesus loves you so much the signs of the times are there and everywhere for all to see. now is the day of salvation make the best decision you can make in this world and give you’re life and you’re heart to Jesus accept him as you’re Lord and Saviour understand that eternity is forever with no end no time God loves you so much but nothing is forced but the offer of salvation is there and the rejection of that is hell for all have sinned are guilty before the holy one the judge of all the living God the judgement of God is near with all that happening in the world the earthquakes the volcanoes it’s obvious that something is going on and you need to get right with God because you’re sins separate you from God. God doesn’t want you to Go to hell which Is why Jesus died for you In you’re place paying the price for you and for the things you’ve committed against God the sins you committed while on this earth so receive the forgiveness of God in Jesus John 3 For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son, so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life. Whoever believes and has decided to trust in Him [as personal Savior and Lord] is not judged [for this one, there is no judgment, no rejection, no condemnation]; but the one who does not believe [and has decided to reject Him as personal Savior and Lord] is judged already [that one has been convicted and sentenced], because he has not believed and trusted in the name of the [One and] only begotten Son of God [the One who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, the One who alone can save him]. This is the judgment [that is, the cause for indictment, the test by which people are judged, the basis for the sentence]: the Light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For every wrongdoer hates the Light, and does not come to the Light [but shrinks from it] for fear that his [sinful, worthless] activities will be exposed and condemned . But whoever practices truth [and does what is right-morally, ethically, spiritually] comes to the Light, so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are-accomplished in God [divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence on Him].”” ‭‭John‬ ‭3:16, 18-21‬ ‭ For the wages which sin pays is death, but the [bountiful] free gift of God is eternal life through (in union with) Jesus Christ our Lord.” ‭‭Romans 6.23 2 Peter3 9The Lord is not slow to do what he has promised, as some think. Instead, he is patient with you, because he does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants all to turn away from their sins
