European Super League – level 2

27-04-2021 07:00

Managers of top European football clubs started to think about a European Super League more than 30 years ago.

The idea was that the European Super League would include the strongest and biggest football clubs in Europe. Many people worried that a European Super League would mean the end of the Champions League, which was the most popular football competition in the world.

The 12 biggest European football clubs signed up to the new league. Some of these clubs were Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United. Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus were among the six clubs from Spain and Italy who also signed up.

Last week, football fans started to protest against the plan. 14 English clubs said that they did not agree with the new league. The UK prime minister Boris Johnson said that he would introduce a new law to stop the plans for a new league.

Difficult words: league (a group of sports clubs which play against each other), include (to have more parts which make one thing), sign up (to officially become a member of something).
