BVB rejection of Super League internally “set in stone”

A participation of Borussia Dortmund in the Super League is absolutely excluded according to SID information. Internally it is “set in stone” that BVB will by no means follow the plans of twelve top European clubs so far. The Ruhr news had reported the assessment as a “no-go”.

According to SID information, the club has not received a request, a concrete offer or a deadline from the league. Exclusively clear communication is difficult due to the listing on the S-Dax as a limited partnership on a share basis (KGaA).

Managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke emphasized on Monday that he was committed to the planned reform of the Champions League. Publicly ruling out a potentially hundreds of million Euro Super League option in advance, but could have legal consequences because BVB, as a KGaA, is obliged to act in the interests of its shareholders (i.e. profit-oriented).

Bayern Munich excluded a Superliga participation on Tuesday, as did PSG.
