LaLiga has decided to appear in the procedure no. 150/2021 followed before the Mercantile Court No. 17 of Madrid, regarding the lawsuit filed by the entity that represents the Super League against UEFA and FIFA.
This intervention by LaLiga has been requested both in the precautionary measures piece and in the main proceedings.
In a note from LaLiga it is stated, verbatim, that “after having knowledge, through the media, of the adoption of an Order that establishes certain precautionary measures, dated April 20, 2021; as well as a second Order, dated July 1, 2021, where the national leagues and the President of LaLiga are explicitly mentioned, it considers that it has a legitimate interest in participating in this procedure given that the decisions derived from it will obviously affect the balance of football in Europe “.
And he points out the same note that “LaLiga has always defended the need to undertake improvements but not in the line proposed from the Super League“and recognizes that” the content of these two Cars has a direct impact on the actions and statements of LaLiga, thus affecting its rights, powers and functions as a professional league. ”
