BBC Radio 4, Today Programme interviews Darren Bailey on the European Super League

Advocate General Rantos issues his long-awaited opinion on the compatibility with European competition law of FIFA-UEFA rules under which any new competitions are subject to their prior approval.

The resounding opinion that the rules are compatible with EU competition law has been warmly welcomed by UEFA/FIFA and many other sports governing bodies.

If ultimately followed, the legal framework set out in the AG Opinion would almost certainly torpedo a European Super League structure anywhere close to that envisaged in its initial format. It would also minimise the risk of fragmentation and break away competitions emerging within existing structures of sport across Europe.
