Italian Football Federation

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has set to work to prevent your teams from participating in a Super League, in the event that it ends up being created independently of the main football entities, UEFA and FIFA. For this reason, at this Monday’s meeting in the FIGC Council, they have decided to approve a preventive regulation.

Thus, the Federation has announced that “Those who participate in a competition not authorized by FIGC, UEFA or FIFA will lose their membership“, ceasing to be part of the main framework of Italian football.” It is clear that if the June 21, deadline for registration applications, someone wants to participate in private competitions, will not participate in our championship, “said the president of FIGC, Gabriele Gravina.

Just a week ago, up to three Italian teams, Juventus, Milan and Inter, announced the creation of the Super League together with the other nine founding clubs, causing a real earthquake in the world football scene. However, the two Milanese teams retracted in recent days after threats from different organizations and pressure from fans.

President Gravina did not rule out an attempt to create another Super League and warns that it is not an “act of weakness”, as many suspected, by historical teams run down. “Anyone who has interpreted the Super League as an act of weakness on the part of some clubs that are going through a period of economic difficulty and a rebellion in the football system is wrong. Is a delicate topic“, he pointed.

Finally, in his speech he wanted to refer to one of the great arguments of the Super League, the need for a change in football formats, and pointed out that he does not rule out modifications in the Italian championships.

“The format must take into account the equipment reduction. My idea of ​​’playoff’ and ‘playout’ is not a mystery, now that the Premier League is thinking about it too, it has become fashionable. No one is a prophet in his land, but I hope it will serve as a stimulus, “he said.
