LaLiga has criticized plans for another attempt by Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus to relaunch the Premier League.
The breakaway competition, which included 12 elite European clubs, kicked off in April 2021 but collapsed 48 hours later after Premier League clubs withdrew due to widespread public backlash and political opposition.

Bernd Richart, the new CEO of A22 Sports Management, the company promoting the revamped plan, said recently that the project is “very alive” and could be relaunched in 2025.
LaLiga responded with a tweet On Friday who said: “Premier League promoters are now preparing a model similar to the one in 2019, which is still mostly closed or closed, which will destroy the national leagues and which has already been rejected by clubs and leagues in Europe.”
And the video posted in the tweet stated: “Premier League promoters are trying to hide its format, claiming that they still have a consistent model, although it will be comprehensive and open.

“We know this is a mistake and that they want to introduce a semi-closed format similar to the 2019 format, which has already been rejected by clubs and [the] European Championships [group].
“This model is based on promotion and compromise between European divisions where the national leagues do not provide direct access to the top level. On the contrary, it perpetuates the participation of a privileged few, even if they underperform in their domestic leagues.”
Richart said the revamped Premier League project would be more comprehensive with a “sports merit application”, which was one of the main criticisms of the initial plan.
He added that the Premier League will not play on the weekend and therefore will not affect the domestic competitions.

Football’s governing bodies, UEFA and FIFA, oppose the creation of the Premier League.
The European Court of Justice (ECJ) is set to rule in the coming months on a challenge presented by Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, the remaining clubs in the project, for the alleged monopoly control they say UEFA has over international competitions.
Meanwhile, Richart said he will meet with UEFA next week in Nyon, Switzerland, to open up a dialogue.
“We offered UEFA a means of dialogue and I accepted this invitation,” he said. mark. “I will be in Nyon next week to speak to UEFA about this issue. This is also what I understand through dialogue, that the other side is heard and we can face the ideas.
“Of course, we will not be able to agree on everything. But it is a good sign for clubs that at the moment may still be ashamed or even fear sanctions if they engage in dialogue. UEFA’s commitment to the possibility of an open dialogue on the future of football is a positive sign.”
