Outgoing Barcelona President Josep Maria Bartomeu says that the club has accepted invitations to join a much talked about new European Super League.
In a press conference on Tuesday, Bartomeu announced he — along with the entire Barcelona board of directors — was to step down with immediate effect, whilst also declaring that the Spanish club has agreed to join the proposed European Super League in an attempt to guarantee the club’s future financial sustainability.
“I can announce some news that will in an extraordinary way change the club’s revenue prospects for the coming years,” Bartomeu said towards the end of his press conference.
“Yesterday (Monday, October 27), the Board of Directors approved the acceptance of the requirements to participate in a future European Super League, a project promoted by the big clubs in Europe.
“The details of the proposal will be at the disposal of the next Board of Directors and the decision on participation in the competition will have to be ratified by the General Assembly. We (Board of Directors) also agreed on the new format of the new Club World Cup.”
The Club World Cup is a FIFA organized event, but a revamped, 24-team edition due to launch in June 2021 has been put on hold due to the global pandemic.
