Michael Calvin’s book “Whose Game Is It?” Author – he says he fears the Super League will likely continue now.

Global Players’ Association warns of SuperLiga effects on “football content and cultural identity”
FIFPro, a global players’ organization, has warned of the fleeing Super League’s impact on “football content and cultural identity”.
FIFPro, a global representative organization of 60,000 professional footballers, said the decision leaves players with “many concerns and questions” in their careers.
FIFA and UEFA have previously suggested that players competing in the Super League could be banned from playing in the World Cup or European Championships.
“Football is based on its unique social and cultural heritage, which not only gives it a unique relationship with fans, but also created an engine for the dissemination of professional play like no other sport,” FIFPro said in a statement.
In order to maintain this, healthy and solidary cooperation between national and international competitions is essential. New competition that undermines this could lead to irreparable damage.
- It is important to note that the emergence of European football at a time of potential disruption reflects a control in which some have had disproportionate forces and most others, including those at the heart of the game – players but also fans – have been largely forgotten.
- Players will continue to be used as resources and tools in these negotiations. This is unacceptable to FIFPRO, our 64 national players’ associations and the 60,000 players we represent. We strongly oppose measures on both sides that undermine players ’rights, such as exclusion from their national team.
