With this, UEFA complied with an order from a corporate court in Madrid, which ruled in July that UEFA should not punish ‘rebellious’ clubs. That was true not only for Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, but also for the nine other clubs involved in the sensational plans.
Twelve top European clubs announced in April the creation of the Super League, a competition that would become separate from UEFA. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Atlético Madrid, Internazionale and AC Milan quickly withdrew under great pressure from the football world and the threat that they would be kicked out of the European cup tournaments by UEFA.
Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus did not distance themselves, on which UEFA prepared a criminal case. That procedure had previously been suspended, but has now been completely discontinued by order of the Spanish court.
