Real Madrid and Barcelona could receive €1 billion loyalty bonus from Super League

In a landmark ruling, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on Thursday found that the rules imposed by FIFA and UEFA on the creation of new competitions, such as the Super League, are contrary to EU law. The decision is a major blow to the two governing bodies, but it does not provide a definitive ruling on the specific case of the Super League, stating that such a competition does not necessarily have to be authorized.

One thing is for sure, the loyalty of Real Madrid and Barcelona, the two founding clubs of the Super League, could be rewarded in the coming weeks. According to Spanish newspaper Sport, the two clubs could receive a loyalty bonus for remaining in the project. The bonus could be as high as €1 billion, according to some sources.

This would be a significant windfall for both clubs, especially Barcelona, which is currently struggling with debt. The money could be used to help the club reduce its debt, invest in new players, or improve its infrastructure.

The ECJ’s ruling is a major victory for the Super League project. It could pave the way for the competition to eventually be launched, although it is still not clear when or if that will happen.
