European football has always been one of the most coveted competitions to win with many having the desire to play in the Champions League which is possibly the hardest club football competition in the world. However, there has been some talk for a couple years now for a couple season that a proposed European Super League might scrap the Champions League together and our thoughts are below,
The Times are reporting that Six Premier League clubs would be part of the 15 ‘permanent founding members’ of the proposed European Super League.
Each club would be offered €350m to join the Super League and would replace the Champions League.

Can’t wait for the next round of fixtures in the Champions League for a football bet? These betting sites not on gamstop at Super6.bet have some of the best odds on the internet for all football markets including the top European Leagues and many other sports. Further to that, they are currently offering some of the best sign up offers for all new customers at the moment.
From a clubs standing point, it seems as if the English sides that are in contention to be signed up to the European Super League and that they would back joining the league. They see it as a different way to be able to play all the best sides in Europe, rather than having a knock-out competition and it would certainly be of financial benefit as it says above in the tweet.
From a fans point of view, it seems that the majority of us are against the idea of European football becoming a league and we much prefer the idea of the knockout stages where we have been blessed with some of the greatest matches in the history of the sport during Champions League knockout rounds. Further to this, if it is a league, we won’t be blessed with a final to look forward to and will all be done on a points system which also take always the fun of the cup. And finally, the Champions League is one of the most prestigious and iconic trophies of all time with many players from the modern era including Cristiano Ronaldo winning the trophy five times and to see it scrapped one be a tragedy in our eyes.
