The Italian Football Federation is implementing a new rule to stop clubs from a possible participation in the Super League in the future. That comes shortly after the European Court of Justice ruled that UEFA and FIFA engaged in “abusing a dominant position” when they took action against the rival league. The new rule does not seem to be directed towards specific clubs, as all Serie A teams publicly denied future involvement in the European Super League project.
🚨🇮🇹 Italian Federation FIGC decided to approve clause to prohibit access to the Super League to Italian clubs.
FIGC will not allow to join any competition other than Uefa, Fifa and FIGC ones.

Italian football is currently going through a tough period, with the national team having missed the last two World Cups, and no Serie A team securing a Champions League title in the past 13 years.
The decision aims to keep the current football pyrimid in Europe, but is it really in favour of the domestic teams, knowing that no Italian clubs can compete with the Premier League sides financially.
