  • No teams have been banned from playing in UEFA competitions.
  • A collective donation of €15m will be made to various good causes.

9 founding members of the European Super League will not be banned from taking part in UEFA competitions, it has been officially confirmed.

Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester City, Liverpool, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid will make a collective donation of €15 million to good causes. They will also lose 5% of UEFA competition revenue next season.

An official statement from Europe's governing body reads: "Those 9 clubs acknowledge and accept that the Super League project was a mistake and apologise to fans, national associations, national leagues, fellow European clubs and UEFA."

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, who remain in the ESL to this day, have all been referred to the 'competent disciplinary bodies' as UEFA aims to kill the Super League project for good.
