The nine clubs are Arsenal FC, Liverpool FC, Manchester City FC, Manchester United FC, Tottenham Hotspur FC, AC Milan, Chelsea FC, Club Atlético de Madrid, and FC Internazionale Milano. The nine clubs will make a combined payment of €15 million for what UEFA called a “gesture of goodwill” to benefit youth and grassroots football. The clubs recognized their mistakes quickly and have taken action to manifest their sorrow and future commitment to European football.
Meanwhile, three clubs Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus have refused to be reintegrated into UEFA and face further punishment. The clubs have also realized that the project would not have been approved under UEFA management. The Clubs consent to having sturdy fines imposed if they seek to play in such an unapproved contest €100 m or if they breach any other duty, they have infiltrated into in the Club Commitment Declaration €50 m.
The UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin
“I said at the UEFA Congress two weeks ago that it takes a strong organization to admit making a mistake especially in these days of trial by social media. These clubs have done just that.”
“In accepting their commitments and willingness to repair the disruption they caused, UEFA wants to put this chapter behind it and move forward in a positive spirit. The measures announced are significant, but none of the financial penalties will be retained by UEFA. They will all be reinvested into youth and grassroots football in local communities across Europe, including the UK.”
“The measures announced are significant, but none of the financial penalties will be retained by UEFA,” said Aleksander Ceferin, the UEFA president. “They will all be reinvested into youth and grassroots football in local communities across Europe, including the UK. These clubs recognized their mistakes quickly and have taken action to demonstrate their contrition and future commitment to European football. The same cannot be said for the clubs that remain involved in the so-called ‘Super League,’ and UEFA will deal with those clubs subsequently.”
But Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus have forbidden to approve what UEFA called “reintegration measures” and will be held to UEFA disciplinary bodies for penalties and sanctions after retreating from the now largely closed competition, indicating they could be banned from the Champions League.
