Germany - Why Bayern’s Super League ‘Verrat’ (Betrayal) Is Bigger News Than Merkel’s Retirement

One would assume that in a week where German Chancellor Angela Merkel announces her retirement, this would be the story that gets all the front pages. In fact, you would be wrong.

Just as it is a ‘religion’ in Brazil whenever the national soccer team is involved, so it is in Germany whenever the teams of the national soccer league, called the ‘Bundesliga’ is playing.

And the scandal couldn’t be bigger as it would seem that the biggest of all German teams, FC Bayern Munich, was planning to exit the league itself and start a European Super League together with 16 other clubs.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">It would be great for TV ratings but a deathblow to the <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#EPL</a>. College football took the same risk in &#39;98, putting money ahead of tradition, and it paid off.

According to the ‘Wikileaks’-like website called ‘Football leaks,’ 16 of the biggest soccer teams in Europe have been toying with the idea of setting up a competition just for themselves.

The plan was that all sixteen teams would simply exit their own national competitions and then start a new league amongst themselves, dividing the revenue.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">16 of Europe soccer clubs held secret talks over a European Super League, according to Fifa documents: Real Madrid, AC Milan, Arsenal, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Manchester United bypassed Uefa, to discuss forming the breakaway competition. <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Philippe Blanchard (@Blanchard100) <a href="">November 7, 2018</a></blockquote>

The alliance of European football leagues has of course vigorously opposed the possible formation of a Super League for sixteen top clubs from Europe as it would threaten the future of professional football in Europe.

"National football matches are the core of all parties involved in Europe: players, clubs, competitions, national federations and especially for the fans. The proposal for a closed Super League will have serious and lasting consequences for professional football in Europe in the long term ", the affiliated leagues write.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">What do you think about a European Super League with the best 12 teams? <a href=""></a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FCBayern</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#europeansuperleague</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#LiverpoolFC</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FCBarcelona</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#dubai</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#uae</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#SaudiArabia</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#football</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#goal</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#ChampionsLeague</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#UEFAChampionsLeague</a> <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#soccer</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; CFFA Global (@CffaGlobal) <a href="">November 6, 2018</a></blockquote>

"European Leagues has repeatedly spoken against the formation of a closed Super League." The association emphasizes that the European UEFA federation is leading in the organization of international competitions in this continent.

Rumors about the possible formation of a Super League have been around for some time. Last week, whistleblowers' platform Football Leaks unveiled that the new "super competition" would start in 2021 with Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan, Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Olympique Marseille, Internazionale and AS Roma as participants.

The teams are convinced they can earn much more money with a mutual and exclusive competition than, for example, in the Champions League.
