UEFA is reportedly set to meet within the next 24 hours regarding the Super League clubs that remain within the Europa League and Champions League, according to football journalist Chris Williams.

While nothing is official until the meeting occurs, Williams says that a motion to ban the remaining clubs will be made during it. This would ban both Manchester United and Arsenal from the Europa League semifinals.

It would also expel three of the four Champions League semifinalists including Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea. There’s been no word what would happen with only PSG left in the competition if the ban is passed.

UEFA ExCo member and Danish FA chairman Jesper Møller commented earlier saying he expects the three Champions League participants to be expelled from the competition on Friday.

This all comes after the announcement of the 12-team Super League that was formally introduced on Sunday. Since then, there has been plenty of backlash to the announcement with UEFA threatening mass bans from clubs and players participating.

UEFA president Alexander Ceferin has already threatened that Super League players will be banned from participating in this summer’s Euros and the 2022 World Cup.

We’ll have to see how this continues to play out within the week as Real Madrid’s status within European competition is seemingly determined. So far it has barely been a full day and there has already been an abundance of reactions towards the announcement of the Super League.
