European Super League 2.0: Rebels Barcelona, Real Madrid & Juventus plan ESL revival – The European Super League may not be dead yet as the three remaining rebel clubs — Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus — are planning another attempt to replace UEFA’s elite Champions League competition, according to German magazine Spiegel.

Last April, a breakaway group of 12 clubs briefly sent shock waves through European football with their short-lived attempt to set up a new elite competition.

European Super League 2.0: It was designed to wrestle power away from European football’s governing body UEFA.

The coup folded within 48 hours when nine clubs – Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, backed down in the face of fierce opposition from fans, players, politicians and organisations.

European Super League 2.0: However, Spiegel reports the remaining rebel clubs – Real, Barcelona and Juventus – are working with two consultancy agencies on their next attempt at launching a “Super League 2.0”.

Spiegel says it has seen a 10-page document titled “Paving the way for the Super League: the strategy for reconstruction, reset – and victory”.

European Super League 2.0: It lays out a campaign designed to win over other top clubs and key figures, such as politicians, stakeholders and journalists.

The strategy outlines different scenarios for a new competition, such as a Super League 1, involving 20 clubs to replace the Champions League and a Super League 2, also containing 20 clubs, instead of the Europa League. There would be promotion and relegation between the two leagues.

The three teams not accepted back into the body that represents interests of professional clubs in European soccer’s UEFA, still retain hope of rekindling the project, which spectacularly failed to get off the ground in April.
