Why The European Premier League Would Be Great For Football

  • Publisert Måned siden

    HITC Sevens

    Runtime: 13:05

    There is talk of Premier League titans like Manchester United, Liverpool, and Manchester City, along with fellow European giants like Real Madrid and Juventus, forming a European Premier League made up of 18 teams that would run alongside their domestic campaigns.
    It isn't the first time a European Super League has been floated, but it is the most serious proposals yet. Whilst the competition would initially rival the UEFA Champions League, and is backed by FIFA, eventually it could replace domestic leagues altogether.
    Understandably, many people have been outraged by these suggestion to overhaul European football / soccer, just as they were with Project Big Picture, but in this video, HITC Sevens takes a look at why a breakaway super league made up of the continents biggest clubs could actually benefit the sport in the long run.

#ImWithESL But not the way it is approached right now, FIFA must plan such super leagues for every continent and a world club cup for winning teams of all super leagues, we can allow bias here like more clubs from some continents, as it also happens in champions league today. World cup should be expanded and European national competitions make no sense. I mean if European clubs and National teams are in fact so strong why not prove it, it's only a piece of cake right?? Who is to say which club will develop a potential star outside of Europe, but only because he/she didn't get proper chance he couldn't develop up to his full potential. I believe Chinese, Korean, Australian and even Indian clubs may be better than EFL league 1 or even EFL Championship clubs. Player growth shouldn't depend on whether they move to Europe or not. Lower League teams suffer financial crises anyway. There are people, investors, football enthusiasts that want to develop football in their country, but fans only watch European football. If ESL in every continent happens fans all over world will truly support their local football teams. Are people in different counties actually able to visit those great stadiums like Camp Nou, Allianz Arena, Ethiad Stadium. NO! This scenario will obviously reduce profits and global fan following of top clubs, but not necessarily viewership. They will still remain top tier teams, so at least in Europe they will become even more popular. I think overall financially it will be financially good for them rather. Football will then have achieved a feat no sport has ever been or even will achieve, "Sport that brings the World together". It will attract much more investors from around the world and fans all over the world will be really happy. Global exposure will now be possible for every club all over the world. Imagine possibilities!! This Idea may seem far'fetched but FANS HAVE ALL THE POWER. European clubs will be left powerless if fans are pro CONTINENTAL ESL. PS- I am not Against EFL or lower leagues just pro WORLD FOOTBALL.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. As a MLS fan, a lot of people want MLS to go pro/rel, but there’s a growing number of fans including myself, that European soccer will join the American system of a closed league system before MLS will ever consider pro/rel because it makes more financial sense in a closed one. But the biggest problem in Europe isn’t that it can’t work, but that the culture of fans won’t allow it to work while in the US, all of our leagues are closed and the only way we get new ones is either A, the unpopular move a team or B, the popular league expansion. Personally, For a euro premier league don’t think it would be as bad as some say, but at the same time, I don’t think it’s good idea because the way it is now is unique.

I know this video is late but my only question is that what this year some clubs that aren’t top clubs are actually doing great and have some coaches that could change how the club will look in the future.. and Manchester United hasn’t been a top club in awhile to be in that, so will we just do by the history of the club Bc if so that’ll mean Leeds will be there but atm they aren’t? That’s my only questions

It's such a terrible idea. Why we love UCL ? Because it's unpredictable or should I say it's so random. Excitement of who your team might face is fantastic. We won't see penalty shootouts if thr are no knockouts. We won't see teams like Barcelona, Liverpool and Roma coming back from a first leg defeat. The idea of random big teams facing each other is far more interesting. But not just Big teams what about other mid table teams who work thr ass off to play in European competition ? When a team like Ajax performs and reaches the Semi final or a team like Malaga ? I don't want see big clubs playing same fixtures every year.

This idea cane only work if promotion/relegation is Kept as a way to allow all European clubs entering it. And sharing revenues with domestic competitions. It could even bring some positive push lower leagues, fans would be driven on supporting them partially. But another championship should be added in between this SL and domestic top leagues, or difference would been too high. And in this you can display all smaller countries top clubs, to allow them compete at higher levels if they are able to on long terms

You have to look no further than how sports leagues work in the United States. We have long ago mastered the art of making money and minimizing risk through competitive closed leagues and mutual brand profitability. There is a tipping point here for the big European clubs; continue to be held back by profit sharing with the small guys or close it off and set up shop for the world to see...and pay for.

A European League would need to get through lots of hurdles to get there and not all the hurdles would be football related. National governments would end up getting involved etc..... This would lead to UEFA trying to seize control of the game from FIFA, the big national associations would go with UEFA, they would certainly lead to banning players from there international games.... It would end up with games ending up playing all over the place......could you imagine Liverpool V Barcelona being played in New York...etc... that would be more common,......Local derby games would end It would end up with the only people making big money would be the lawyers.

The Champions League with the domestic top flights is THE European Premier League. Think of each overlapping 'season' as lasting two years with a staggered arrangement of domestic leagues forming individual conferences that feed into the championship stage (the C.L. itself). So I have no particular desire to see the creation of a European Premier League but as you've observed, this would be the big clubs making their bed to sleep in. If the EuPL is created the Champions League could simply become the 2nd tier of European club football.

This would ruin the FA and league cups as in the quarter finals every English team in this league would play there C team and they’re fans would become more plastic so from my standpoint I’m against it. No team in the league would care and Leicester would win the league more than Man Utd as they’re in a league with West Ham villa and hull and not Man City United and Liverpool

The two fellas who wrote the big picture report are yanks, are you sure they're not looking one step further ahead to a world league? One that includes club sides from China and US who would struggle getting out of the championship. The way to fight this off is by strengthening up the Premier league so not only do all the best managers manage here, but also that all the best players at some point in their career have to play here to be considered the best. Then the top clubs have to voluntarily take less of the TV money. So propaganda is needed to persude players that they have to play in England. Then to gently persude clubs to take less money. A tall order but a sustainable one.

You can keep both domestic and elite leagues if you scrap the home and away format. Shorter sprints for both competitions would be more entertaining than the current domestic marathon. 19 or 17 game domestic and combined multi divisional European leagues plus cups are a workable solution.

This video is wrong in absolutely everything..... Lol...... 1) The premier League is nowhere near broken, I really don't get why people keep insisting this. Leicester have come from nowhere to win the league and consolidate themselves in the top 6. Everton are making big strides and Arsenal have become irrelevant for years now when they were considered nailed on to 4. Wolves are also regular European qualifiers now. The competition is actually more fierce now then it's ever been 2) The 60s/70s weren't that great for the smaller teams. The Manchester Uniteds, Liverpool, Arsenals still won the majority of the titles. It's a total old farts' old wives' tale 3) The draw of these huge clubs is one of THE important draws to the respective country's football set up. The premier League wouldn't be the same without the most successful teams in it. 4) One if THE great stories of this league is how Man Utd overcame a seemingly insurmountable lead by Liverpool of premier League titles. That right there is proof of how things aren't set in stone with the current set up. And it never gets acknowledged how Leicester became premier League winners only in the second season in the prem after promotion pipping the richest clubs in the world to the post. Leicester and wolves are comfortably mixing it with the big boys. 5) To be simply the European League is just stupid! The rivalry between the European clubs is only relevant in the champions League and the performance on their own leagues. Otherwise it's just another game. And this European League stops the potential of new clubs like Dortmund or Atletico becoming European power houses 6) The propaganda of people not liking the 2 legged format is just that: fictional propaganda. Playing home and away is the fundamental part of tournament experience. And Monaco best city over 2 legs 3 years ago. Ajax did it against real 2 years ago. So "upsets" happen all the time.

My instinct on the front of the fans is that all the local, traditional fans will, for the most part, either form protest clubs or join pre-existing ones where such is possible. I feel more fans are more likely to promote a phoenix approach. Particularly the hardline fans. Those who are are less bound to their clubs but still in that fold will probably end up at their local non-league. Especially those lacking in money and or have families. Some will remain but I reckon these clubs will be usurped by all the "plastic" internationals who just hunt for glory and only care about winning. Furthermore, I'm sure a lot of these groups will more than willing to continue paying premiums

Firstly, you mentioned that the Big 6 oligopoly already existed but failed to address that we, football fans, have been calling for a change in the oligopoly. You're pretending the European Premier League can alleviate the problem while in fact, the problem is going to be worsened and the disconnection would worsen. Secondly, you only talked about English football system but ignored the fate of the other smaller leagues. How are teams like Tirana from Albania and Kobenhavn from Denmark react to that? Thirdly, you said that fans can support other sports, which makes zero sense considering football is all about fans.

Let me just preface this by saying I watched the entire video. I usually really enjoy your videos because I think the vast majority of them are well-made and thought out well. This time, I'm sorry, but I have to say I think you are way off. Aside from only viewing this topic from an English perspective, you didn't really justify your claim that "English football is broken". I understand that it's easy to idealize the past and rue the fact that English football has become more commercialized and that the top 6 clubs of the Premier League have deep pockets that allow them to consistently win trophies. However, it's not like Premier League football has become some boring nonsense where anyone can easily predict which team is winning which trophy every season like clockwork. Just look at Leicester City winning the Premier League in the 2015-2016 season. No one predicted that would happen and it still did. I don't think almost any true fans of any Premier League club would easily move on and find another club to support. I'm sure you know that most football fans take their commitment to their favorite club very seriously. As a result, I think it's naive to expect that Man United leaving the Premier League, for example, would help other English clubs, especially those in the lower leagues, get more fans. I think it's equally unlikely that fans will accept seeing their favorite club leave the Premier League, participate in a failed European League, then have to climb the ladders of English football from amateur football all the way back to the Premier League. I'm willing to listen to opposing viewpoints, of course, but I just don't believe you've actually made a good argument in favor of the idea of a European Premier League. Sorry, but you sounded naive and overly sentimental in this video. Just my two cents.

I think one idea for reform is to have countries uniting to form united leagues, like Holland and Belgium are currently discussing, or unite Scandinavian countries, a bit like the old Soviet league with all the different republic’s’ teams competing, or even what we have already with Welsh clubs competing in England. Something like that could quite possibly enable clubs like Ajax to retain their best players. One fundamental problem is the fact that your potential for success as a club is essentially largely defined by the size and population of your own country, so a lot of inequality is largely down to geography

Concerning the single-leg formats of knockout rounds, I'm afraid even fans would oppose such a move, as that takes away the European nights that makes these home stadium atmospheres so special. We would not have the likes of classics Liverpool's comeback against Barcelona without these home fans. Last season's UCL knockout was just that - a one-off because of COVID. Though I do agree that this European Premier League or any super league plans, threatens to dilute these European nights that made them special in the first place.

Personally I think that although the premier league has a so called established top six, let's not forget that is a considerable amount of teams competing for the title, compared to the other top european domestic leagues where it is just between two teams predominantly. Another point I think is false is that the premier league will be more competitive without teams who feature in the top six, as whoever wins the league will know they faced lesser competition and the league loses its integrity and over time a new handful of teams will be considered the elite, and criticised upon. It's a pipedream to think that football can return to its roots when money dominates the sport and I dont believe that if some of the teams who are in the top six leave to join a european premier league that this will change, as other teams within the domestic premier league will inevitably gain richer owners regardless.

The champions league is already the European super league. 4 top teams from top 4 leagues, then 2-3 from ligue 1, and basically the champions from bunch of other countries, and with the exception of some like Russian prem, or portugese liga nos, even the champions of countries like Holland (Ajax) have to battle through playoff qualifiers to get in. It's already protected enough for the big teams, without making it obvious that they only want a competition only for the most rich teams/ ones that will generate most money

I remember football management video games from about 3 decades ago, that tried the european premier league idea. Result... a boring game. At least in domestic leagues, there are many cups to break it up, with a euro league, they'll be no or very few cup games due to the lack of teams in the tourny pool (league/fa cup with just 20 teams in round 1, the same teams in the euro prem league, no thanks).

I think such an idea would be untenable due to the distances involved. Maybe in 50 years time when everyone has flying cars and we can get from the UK to Europe extremely quickly and cheaply it might work. I think a lot of us would miss local rivalries especially if it became a separate breakaway league for the "super" clubs of Europe. This seems to be what the idea actually is which is not at all popular with a majority of fans. I think we would more likely see the merger of the Scottish and English leagues before we see a European Premier League and that also seems unlikely. I think a cup format for European competitions is far better. As for the World Cup I think it probably should be expanded to 64 teams and there should be an extra group stage to knock it down from 64 to 32. The competition may last 10 to 14 days longer. Who will complain about watching more football and having a few drinks every day/night during the summer? Might be more chances of upsets and also discovering new unknown talent that then come to clubs in our country and others and make it big.

As a Chelsea fan since the age of 6, this concept is very scary. No way would I want to see my team playing Bayern and Real every week. I would definitely find a new team to support, as sad as it may be. Brighton are the most likely candidates

If the superleague were to form, it should have promotion and relegation, with at least 2 divisions, and the possibility of being promoted into it from domestic competition, and relegated out of it (like the National League)

Big money moves would actually happen less often. Right now big clubs sell big names because they know they wont have to meet them again very often. Would Neymar to PSG, Coutinho to Barca, Pogba to Man Utd, Havertz, Werner to Chelsea happen if the clubs selling those players know they have too meet them twice a year and regret it. Nope.

"The Champions League is UEFA's main cash cow, that's why they're always making it bigger" "A league were super teams meet each other every week would drive away fans" Yeah, that makes sense. Star power drives leagues profitability. Not competitiveness, not fairness, not anything else really. The Bundesliga has been making more money for the last 10 year with Bayern winning it every year than in the 2000s when you had 5 different winners. This outlook makes no sense. We should be focusing on making it a level and fair playing field, not acting like it's not gonna happen
