Arsenal apologized in an open letter to their fans and said they had “made a mistake”, adding they were withdrawing after listening to them and the “wider football community”.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin welcomed the reversal, adding: “They are back in the fold now and I know they have a lot to offer not just to our competitions but to the whole of the European game.
“The important thing now is that we move on, rebuild the unity that the game enjoyed before this and move forward together.”
It all happened after the connected protest ongoing by fans against the breakaway league. Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge, around 1000 fans gathered outside of the ground before their game against Brighton on Tuesday to protest at their club’s involvement.
Premier League ‘big six’ club was part of a group, also comprising Spain’s Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Real Madrid. Plus Italy AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Juventus, that stated plans to form the breakaway league, which they expected to establish as a new midweek competition.
In England, it was condemned by football fans, football authorities, and by government in the UK and across Europe by UEFA and league associations.
The league would have given more power to the elite club, to the most prominent clubs in exchange for a substantial financial compensation package and a greater portion of broadcast revenues for the English Football League (EFL).
