FIFA and UEFA have moved to block the formation of any breakaway European Super League by banning any player who takes part from the World Cup and European Championship.

Now world football's governing body has distanced itself from any Super League idea and introduced the deterrent that any player involved would be barred from flagship international tournaments.

A statement released jointly by FIFA and its six confederations read: 'In light of recent media speculation about the creation of a closed European 'Super League' by some European clubs, FIFA and the six confederations once again would like to reiterate and strongly emphasise that such a competition would not be recognised by either FIFA or the respective confederation.

'As per the FIFA and confederations statutes, all competitions should be organised or recognised by the relevant body at their respective level, by FIFA at the global level and by the confederations at the continental level.

'In this respect, the confederations recognise the FIFA Club World Cup, in its current and new format, as the only worldwide club competition while FIFA recognises the club competitions organised by the confederations as the only club continental competitions.

'The universal principles of sporting merit, solidarity, promotion and relegation, and subsidiarity are the foundation of the football pyramid that ensures football's global success and are, as such, enshrined in the FIFA and confederation statutes.

Between 16 and 18 teams from England, France, Germany, Spain and Italy would be invited to play in the European Premier League from 2022.They would play home and away matches against each team in the league in a round robin format, meaning a minimum of 30 games, followed by a knockout competition to determine the champion.
