Bayern Munich’s CEO, Jan-Christian Dreesen, says a European Super League would be “an attack on the importance of national leagues,” while reaffirming that “the door to the Super League remains closed at Bayern”.
Mr. Dreesen was responding to yesterday’s European Court of Justice ruling that UEFA broke EU law in blocking the rival competition.
Bayern were not one of the 12 clubs to initially sign up to the Super League in 2021, saying they rejected the idea. The six-time European champions have consistently expressed their opposition to any breakaway plans.
German clubs, unlike those in other major European leagues, must comply with the so-called 50+1 rule, which mandates member control of operations.
