Arsenal confirmed  that they are part of the new break away Super League which has England’s big six and some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

This news has been met with a heavy backlash from Football fans around the world. Here is why this new Super League could be the end of Arsenal and football as we know it.

The league is revolves around money as reported in the New York times each team entering the Super League would earn $400m (£300m) we all know how the continued monetization of football is ruining the game.

Should the Super League materialize, Arsenal and the other clubs would be banned from all UEFA, domestic and FIFA competitions. That means Arsenal would no longer play in the Premier League, FA cup or the Champions/ Europa League.

Arsenal’s players would also be banned from representing their nations at tournaments such as the World Cup. This is insane!

Arsenal Supporters Trust reaction

“The AST deplores the announcement by Arsenal that they are breaking away to form a European Super League. This represents the death of everything that football should be about.

“As fans we want to see Arsenal play in competitions based on sporting merit and competitive balance.

“Not surprisingly this action has been taken with no consultation or dialogue, continuing the silence and contempt that Kroenke has shown for Arsenal supporters since day one.

“The AST will do everything we can to oppose this. It will require firm action by the Government and the Football Authorities.

“We urge all Arsenal fans and all football fans to fight this by speaking up and acting against. By standing together we can see off this greedy proposal.”

This Super League idea is a selfish plan that doesn’t correlate with other football stakeholders besides the money minded club owners.

A keen follower and fan of Arsenal since the mid-2000s with passion for the game. I aim to write honest and interesting articles about the club I love, and to share my opinions with as many other fans as possible.
