#SuperLeague #Madrid #CGUE Abbiamo visto molti discutere sul peso del tribunale di Madrid dichiarandolo inutile. Questa é un'affermazione grave. Prima di tutto é un tribunale, e come tale va sempre rispettato, ma soprattutto la storia dice che Madrid pesa! e come se pesa.
[1/10]
Forse in pochi si ricordano che, ai tempi delle prime penalizzazioni, il tribunale aveva intimato alla UEFA di annullare le sanzioni per non rischiare processi. E cos'ha fatto la UEFA? Ha ritirato le sanzioni.

Se veramente contava così poco e solo la CGUE può dire la sua perché la famiglia Ceferin non ha continuato nel suo intento? Forse perchè il tribunale di Madrid conta qualcosa?!

#SuperLeague La SL é morta. Infatti é il suo fantasma a vincere gli appelli. Come detto da tempo, mettete da parte il tifo ed ignorate la propaganda se volete la verità. E così non fate una figuraccia quando parlate con i vostri amci. Ma cosa significa questa sentenza?
[1/9]
Prima di tutto, nelle motivazioni del tribunale, viene dimostrato come la UEFA e la FIFA, attraverso le loro azioni, hanno abusato della loro posizione per impedire la nascita di un competitor e per difendersi hanno utilizzando delle scuse.
[2/9]
La concorrenza é un diritto e per tale motivo, secondo il tribunale, la UEFA e la FIFA non possono impedire la nascita di un nuovo progetto utilizzando la loro posizione mediatica ed economica. L'aspetto della pressione mediatica è importante perchè include i giornalisti!

I read AG Rantos' #SuperLeague Opinion (available at curia.europa.eu/juris/document…) for you and here are my main takeaways 🧵🧵🧵

#Sportslaw #EUlaw #BosmanDay #FIFA #UEFA
It opens with some drama, "the very existence of the organisational structure of the modern game" and "the the future of European football" are at play. (§2)
The first really interesting part of the Opinion concerns the AG's assessment of the relevance of Article 165 TFEU and the European Sports Model in the case (§§27-42).

#SuperLeague Attenzione! Tutti dicono vittoria UEFA ma si notano fatti che rendono il finale ancora piú complesso secondo noi! Cerchiamo di fare una sintesi attuale dal nostro punto di vista.
[1/5]
Infatti ad ora l'avvocato ha detto che la UEFA non é un monopolio (vittoria UEFA), la SL puó fare quello che vuole (vittora SL) e chi fa la SL deve essere approvato dalla UEFA per partecipare alla CL(non si parla di punizioni peró).
[2/5]
In pratica, se i club decidono di fare la SL e non partecipare piú alla CL crolla tutto. Ora sicuramente i fan della SL si attaccheranno al secondo punto, i fan della UEFA sul primo, ma tutte due le fazioni non avranno ragione sul terzo punto.

UEFA v #SuperLeague has ended. Lots of Qs from judges, hinting where the fault lines of the case are:
- Treaty articles on sport & antitrust
- 'closed competitions'
- Solidarity payments
- notion of 'restricting competition'
- specificities of sport
Settle down for a /thread
Jan Passer, reporting judge, asked about money. He wants to know how much cash countries get from UEFA. What %age of their income? He asked #ESL what its plans are.

#ESL has a solidarity fund. But it is voluntary. Still, they reckon it's better than UEFA's. /1
AG Rantos asked why doesn't ESL just set up outside the UEFA ecosystem.

ESL said the clubs would get sanctioned & might face bankruptcy. They need some time to build the new league, it said. For that it needs the money, and the sanctions for leaving are "draconian."/2

It's been pretty brutal for #EuropeanSuperLeague this morning in #EUhearing against @UEFA

EU countries lining up to call it a "cartel" that rubbishes "Europe's model of sport."

Romania, Poland, Malta, Portugal, Austria, Slovenia. None of them had a positive word for #ESL /1
Norway was also there. (It isn't an EU member, but it took up its right to plead before ECJ). It noted that Norwegian teams from the provinces had been promoted and played European sport because of the openness of UEFA structure, on sporting merit. #ESL puts that at risk /2
Shame there was no mention of @ErlingHaaland even though his old club was mentioned as one of the places that benefitted from the UEFA model.

"Its about preserving opportunities," Norway's lawyer said. /3

EU-gebouwen hebben enkele dingen gemeen: ze zijn groot, je struikelt er over de vlaggen, je komt er moeilijk in en nog moeilijker uit. Het EU Hof van Justitie te Luxemburg is daarop geen uitzondering. Zo meteen begint hier de zaak over de #SuperLeague.

fd.nl/politiek/14446…
Veel lidstaten gebruiken hun sprekersrecht vandaag in Luxemburg tijdens de #SuperLeague zaak - die ruwweg draait om de vraag of Uefa en Fifa dit initiatief de nek om mochten draaien - maar Nederland ziet er vanaf zijn zegje te doen.
Overigens ging SL-zaak vanmorgen vooraf door vglbare kwestie over schaatsers. Mocht schaatsbond ISU de Nederlanders Tuitert en Kerstholt dreigen met levenslange schorsing vanwege deelname aan wedstrijdje in Dubai? Op 15/12 volgt conclusie adv-generaal.

Update: EU court opened with skating dispute, saying it was the "warm-up" for #SuperLeague
Short summary:
- very engaged court
- will pose qu's later on conflicts of interest at @uefa
- will explore EU treaty conflict btw sport & competition law
- Opinion slated for Dec 15
/1
This morning was about International Skating Union @ISU_Speed against @EU_Commission over #antitrust decision that excluded @marktuitert from Dubai-based events.

ISU imposed bans because the Dubai event featured betting. EC said the eligibility criteria were not transparent. /2
Jan Passer (Czech judge) is leading the questions & was forensic. Wanted to know about where ISU got its powers from (derived from IOC @iocmedia ? or member associations?). Also wanted to know about "conflicts of interest." This is a governing body having regulatory powers.../3

Huge day of sport at EU’s top court. If you like football or indeed love speed skating, then I’ll be there for you.

In short, it’s about whether UEFA can block rival competitions such as the #SuperLeague Here’s what it’s about /thread
15 judges at @EUCourtPress are reviewing the fight between #ESL and @UEFA

Despite the club mutiny, ESL is still pursuing its case in Madrid court over UEFA’s rules being unfair & blocking rival competitions. A Madrid court has asked the EU court for help. /1
The main question: is @uefa a business abusing its power to run football? By threatening lifetime bans for players/clubs from the Euros or the #ChampionsLeague is it misusing that power? That would breach EU competition law. /2

Messi, le dessous des cartes?
Pourquoi la prolongation de contrat était ok le jeudi matin et plus le jeudi soir?
Avec l'💰 reçu de la Liga-CVC le #Barça pouvait le garder. Laporta était content mais change d'avis à la dernière minute.
La raison?
#Florentino et sa Super League👇
2/ C ce k dénonce le dirigeant démissionnaire du #Barça Jaume Llopis.
En résumé: Florentino Perez croit tjs à son projet #SuperLeague. Et le Barça son allié stratégique. MAIS si Laporta accepte l'💰 de la Liga, il n'a plus besoin de l'💰 SuperLeague. C la crainte de Florentino👇
3/ Selon @marca et l'ex-dirigeant du Barça Llopis : #Florentino parvient donc à faire subitement changer d'avis à #Laporta, qui préfère virer Messi en refusant l'accord et l'💰 Liga-CVC. Désarroi de Messi.
Av quels arguments et leviers Perez y parvient-il?

But I'm sure you know better, right? Best three players can win 200 CHF. Good luck! Image
First predictions in. That was fast 😮

FC Basel gets more credit, that was expected. The model probably underestimates the Sforza factor, but we will see. Maybe there is a Degen factor, too 😂

Will be interesting to see the averages at the end...

This is exciting for #Sports fans - Especially #boxing

Lower cost access
More shows
Bigger production

Interesting, it's announced a week after #SundayTimes named the owner of #DAZN as the richest man in the UK (again)!

That rich list is an good starting point to explore Image

Yesterday was another crazy day for #Football & specifically in this case, for #Derby #dcfcfans

#EFL ruling on their accounting practices

Threat of sanctions - What will that mean?

#RichardKeough ruling - They have to pay him £2.3m (bonkers episode)🤯

Then add in the farce of the #takeover process

I'm equally fascinated & frustrated by rogue investors in #EnglishFootball

I've read widely and spoken to people with genuine knowledge of the machinations of global finance💸

What puzzles me today is, how/why did #MelMorris get himself in this hole?😏

Lungo thread.
I superstiti della #Superleague insistono sul concetto di solidarietà. Prendiamo un attimo calcolatrici e bilanci per dimostrare come questa solidarietà, di fatto, non esista. O quantomeno non dia garanzie maggiori rispetto a quella della Uefa.
Nella stagione 19/20 la Uefa ha distribuito 242,8 milioni di contributo solidale ai club non partecipanti alle competizioni europee. Prima della pandemia, il contributo aveva raggiunto quota 275,2 milioni. La #Superleague prometteva 10 miliardi in 23 anni, 435 milioni annui.
A chi andrebbero questi 435 milioni? La #Superleague prevedeva 20 club: 12 noti, 3 presumibili e 5 da invitare. Facciamo che i 5 siano invitati dalle top 5 leagues: chi sta fuori? Shakhtar, Zenit, Ajax e Benfica, a mero titolo di esempio. Anche a loro spetterebbe la solidarietà.

🇪🇺 Leaders d'opinion ⚽

Récemment, le projet avorté #EuropeanSuperLeague a fait s'enflammer #Twitter.

Au cœur des millions de tweets publiés sur le sujet, des voix ont un poids particulièrement important.

Voici les #KOL du foot européen selon la #data :

[THREAD] ⤵️
Ce thread est la suite de l'analyse que j'avais partagé sur l'impact de Twitter dans l'abandon de la Super League.

Le #dataset utilisé est le même : 2,6 millions de tweets postés par 876 000 users uniques dans 5 langues (🇫🇷 🇬🇧 🇪🇦 🇮🇹 🇩🇪 )

Là où dans la première analyse je me consacrais sur les contenus (sentiment analysis, cartographies sémantiques...), ici l'objectif est d'analyser les émetteurs de contenu influents.

THREAD: LA SUPER LEAGUE, UN FALLIMENTO POLITICO?
A causa del malcontento provocato, il progetto calcistico della #SuperLeague è naufragato appena 48 ore dopo il suo annuncio: ma quali sono le ragioni dietro il suo fallimento?

1/
Perché la minaccia di creare questa Super League fosse credibile erano necessarie 5 condizioni:
1 Grandi club disposti a uscire
2 Appoggio dei tifosi
3 Sostenibilità economica
4 Appoggio del sistema calcio
5 Appoggio (o quantomeno non ostilità) della politica

2/
Di queste condizioni, però, solo la prima è stata soddisfatta.

Partiamo dai tifosi. Le loro proteste per strada e sui social sono state la rappresentazione di un malcontento diffuso, come mostra questo sondaggio YouGov condotto nel Regno Unito.

Glede na sorazmerno prijazen odziv na komentarje v zvezi z (brezvezno) nogometno superligo, poskušam svoje razmišljanje nekoliko podrobneje predstaviti. Izhajam pa iz vseživljenjskega spremljanja angleškega nogometa. #SuperLeague
Spominjam se otroštva, ko mi je oče pripovedoval o časih, ko je povprečen prvoligaški nogometaš v Angliji na teden zaslužil približno toliko kot pismonoša.
Kasneje sem se lotil preverjanja te legende. Res je bilo tako v prvih desetletjih poklicnega nogometa, tam nekje do dvajsetih let prejšnjega stoletja (dodatne premije nogometašev, žepnina ob prestopih in bonitete v pubih niso bile vštete v plače nogometašev).

"Plans for the elitist, money-grabbing league were unveiled Sunday night, triggering universal condemnation and galvanizing #fans against the 12 owners who proposed the tone-deaf breakaway."

1/ "The #SuperLeague collapsed under the weight of its own greed less than 48 hours after it was introduced, & Henry posted an apology video hours later in which he said, “The project put forward was never going to stand without the support of the fans....'"
2/ '...No one ever thought differently in #England. Over these 48 hours you were very clear that it would not stand. We heard you. I heard you.'”

#Uefa spara a zero su #SuperLeague, perchè mina la competitività. Ipocrisia. Il calcio di oggi è già mercato con forti barriere all'entrata (es: fair play finanziario), e quindi scarsamente concorrenziale.
La SuperLeague ha buone idee: salary cap e redistribuzione profitti.👇
La SuperLeague nasce come spinta naturale della globalizzazione. Maggiori economie di scala, ed effetto superstar su ingaggi. Sappiamo già che il costo è una maggiore disuguaglianza. Ecco perchè sono necessari meccanismi di redistribuzione. Infatti il progetto SL li prevedeva.
Sistema calcio non può più reggersi sui diritti televisivi. Inutile aumentare il numero di partite. Perchè il mercato si espande con il pubblico in Asia, che però non può vedere le partite in diretta. Pubblico giovane in Asia segue highlights sui social networks il giorno dopo👇

Ja, das ist ein interessanter Gedanke und ein interessanter Thread von @Grindelnerd, also Thread im Sinne der Replies und Re-Replies. Einiges sehe ich ähnlich, manches kommt mir aber zu kurz. #SuperLeague #UEFA #Bundesliga #ChampionsLeague 1/19
Ich glaube auch, dass sich gerade organisierte Fanszenen fragen (lassen) müssen, wen sie außer sich selbst repräsentieren, und wie viel Verein, Stadt, Mitfans, Vereinsmitgleider sie hinter sich haben, bzw. erreichen. So fällt an ganz vielen Standorten zb auf ... 2/19
Dass die Städte viel diverser sind als die Szenen. In (west-)deutschen Großstädten mit Migrationsanteil 50% und mehr in jüngeren Altersgruppen hat man erstaunlich oft trotzdem weitgehende white boys Fanszenen. Und nein, der eine Schwarzkopf ändert diesen Befund nicht. 3/19

🇺🇸 The #EuropeanSuperLeague represents the ‘relentless Americanisation’ of the sport , this is how 👇

telegraph.co.uk/football/2021/…
❌ No relegation
🆙 No promotion

Since 2000, in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys have won 177 games and lost 169. Yet they are the most valuable sports franchise worth $5.5 billion. Mediocrity pays
There are no rewards with winning.

📊For every 10 per cent more games that an NFL franchise wins, they will only earn 0.14 per cent in extra revenue - ‘Whoever wins, everyone wins’
