PSG lost no time in made a public announcement against the newly accepted European Super League following the news about the competition getting greenlighted by the European Court of Justice (CJEU) on Thursday morning.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the president of PSG, released a press release in the name of the club, emphatically rejecting the idea of a Super League and the potential participation of Paris Saint-Germain in future editions of the competition.

The statement read, “Paris Saint-Germain totally and completely rejects any project for a so-called Super League, which was the case since day one and always will be. As a proud European institution, PSG supports the principles of the European sporting model, the values of open competition and inclusion, and works with all recognized stakeholders of European football - especially with supporters and players, who are at the heart of football.”

PSG's opposition aligns with that of many other leading European clubs who have also declared their refusal to participate in such a league. Outside of ESL leaders Real Madrid and Barcelona, both of Spain's La Liga, have announced their rejection to the staging of souch a competition throughout Thursday.

Notable among these are English Premier League clubs, including Manchester United and Manchester City. Other prominent European clubs like Bayern Munich, Atletico de Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, and AS Roma have similarly expressed their disapproval of the Super League proposal.
