Coventry City joins the wider footballing world in condemning the plans for a so-called ‘European Super League’.
The plans are divisive and threaten the very fabric of the sport in this country.
The competitive nature of the league structure and the ability for Clubs to earn their right to play in competitions is integral to football in this country, and what makes it so exciting and compelling for all of us who care about the sport. The proposed ‘Super League’ threatens that structure and the importance those Clubs play in their communities.
These plans are driven solely by the greed of the Clubs involved and for their own financial benefit, and have tarnished the reputation of the game.
Especially at a time when supporters are not able to attend games, this is a kick in the teeth for fans of those Clubs, all football supporters and the wider football family.
We support the efforts being made by fans, the EFL, the FA, the Government, other organisations and individuals in opposing these plans.
