UEFA could ban Super League players from Euro 2020, WCup

MONTREUX, Switzerland (AP) — UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says players at the 12 clubs setting up their own Super League could be banned from this year’s European Championship and next year’s World Cup. Ceferin spoke following a UEFA executive committee meeting held only hours after the English, Italian and Spanish clubs announced the project that threatens to split European soccer. Ceferin says “they will not be able to represent their national teams at any matches.” The 12 clubs planning to start the breakaway Super League earlier told the leaders of FIFA and UEFA that they have begun legal action aimed at fending off threats to block the competition.
