The president of FIFA, the Swiss Gianni Infantino, made an appearance at the UEFA Congress to confirm that the body that governs world football disapproves of a closed Super League. “FIFA can only strongly disapprove that it is a closed shop. A break with the institutions, leagues, federations, UEFA and FIFA, "he said. In his speech, Infantino did not make a direct reference to the sanctions with which the institution he presides and UEFA threatens the 12 founding clubs of the Superliga and those who join, but he did issue a warning: “If some choose to follow their own path, they must live with the consequences of their choice, they are responsible for it. Concretely, this means that you are either in or you are out. You can't be half in and half out ”·

Infantino also reached out for dialogue, but "always with respect and solidarity with the institutions, leagues, UEFA, FIFA, history and the passion of fans around the world."

UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin of Slovenia continued his harsh criticism of the founders of the Super League.

"They treat fans like customers," he said.

Čeferin quoted the clubs that won the European Cup such as Hamburg, Red Star, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa, which are now not in the elite: “Football is dynamic and changeable, but credit is earned in a competition in the field ”.
