UEFA announced this Wednesday that they have suspended the disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, who are still committed to the European Super League. That means that the three clubs won’t be facing a ban from participating in the UEFA Champions League any time soon, even after some reports suggested that UEFA was considering said suspension.

Here’s UEFA’s statement:
Following the opening of disciplinary proceedings against FC Barcelona, Juventus FC and Real Madrid CF for a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework in connection with the so-called ‘Super League’ project, the UEFA Appeals Body has decided to stay the proceedings until further notice.

This is great news for the clubs, as participating in the Champions League is crucial in modern football, both financially and from a reputation perspective.

As things stand right now, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus have not pulled away from the Super League, although it’s clear that they would need more clubs involved if they intend to carry on with the project.
