Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal will be forced to quit the Premier League if they play in the European Super League. A rule in the Premier League guidelines will stop them. Under rule L9, clubs are not allowed to play in any competitions other than those listed during the football season.
The full rule states: “Except with the prior written approval of the Board, during the Season a Club shall not enter or play its senior men’s first team in any competition other than:
“L.9.1 the UEFA Champions League, L.9.2 the UEFA Europa League, L.9.3. the FA Cup, L.9.4 the FA Community Shield, L.9.5. the Football League Cup or L.9.6 competitions sanctioned by the County Association of which it is a member.”
Premier League, as expected, is against the tournament.
