UEFA has suspended legal action against the three remaining clubs that are still involved in the so-called European Super League.
The proceedings against Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid have been declared “null and void,” said UEFA.
The three clubs had argued in court that UEFA’s attempt to punish them for creating a breakaway league was against European competition law.
UEFA will also reach out to the other nine clubs involved in the attempted spin-off to inform them that they will no longer have to pay the fines imposed on them for attempting to set up the ESL in April.
The nine clubs are Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
In May, the nine clubs agreed to pay a total fine of € 15 million and withhold five percent of their UEFA competition revenue for one season.
UEFA is dismissing its lawsuit because it respects the Spanish judicial process and believes that it is neither in its interest nor in the interest of its member associations to take this to court.
UEFA will continue to do whatever is necessary to prevent the formation of a breakaway league and reserves the right to take legal action if the project or a similar project is revived.
