UEFA have announced that they started disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, who are the three clubs still formally and officially inside the European Super League announced last month.

Here’s UEFA’s brief statement as found on Sky Sports:
Following an investigation conducted by UEFA Ethics and Disciplinary Inspectors in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project, disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Real Madrid CF, FC Barcelona and Juventus FC for a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework.

Reports from the Spanish press published on MARCA, AS or Cadena COPE suggest that the three clubs could be facing a two-year ban from the Champions League. They could also receive a €100 million fine if they decide to participate in a “non-authorized” tournament such as the Super League, per those same reports.

This will not be solved any time soon unless Real Madrid, Juventus and Barcelona decide to pull out from the Super League like the other nine clubs who were involved did, something they’re not considering at the time of this report.
