While 12 clubs announced on Sunday the creation of a European Super League, a female version is already in the pipes, according to the press release from the new continental competition.
PSG qualified for the semi-finals of the Women’s Champions League this Sunday, dominating the Lyon ogre (2-1) in the quarter-final second leg. A very big performance in a competition that could soon experience a big blow … with the creation of a women’s Super League.
In any case, this is what the press release of the 12 clubs promises, formalizing this Sunday the creation of a men’s Super League, a semi-closed competition which puts a big blow to UEFA and its project to reform the format of the League of champions.
The same clubs as for men?
“As soon as possible, after the start of the men’s competition, a Women’s Super League will also be launched in order to help the development of women’s football and take it forward like never before,” the document promises, after detailing the format of the Super Men’s League which will start “as soon as possible”.
This suggests for the moment that the founding members of this future competition would be the same as for the men’s Super League: AC Milan, Arsenal, Atlético, Chelsea, FC Barcelona, Inter, Juve, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real and Tottenham. The contours remain however still vague, the announcements of the day concerning for the moment only the men.
