Europe's top football clubs created a super league. It fell apart less than 48 hours later. The richest teams in Europe said they would start the European Super League in August. This made fans, players and managers angry. Even the British Prime Minister was angry. He said the new league would destroy football. The worldwide anger made the clubs pull out of the ESL. Many football fans protested. They said greedy club owners created the ESL.

Six of England's richest teams and top teams from Spain and Italy agreed to join the ESL. No teams from Germany and France joined. This made it less European. In Germany, teams are 51-per-cent owned by fans, so fan power is big. The UK government said it would take action to stop the ESL. Premier League clubs want the six English clubs to leave their league. FIFA said it might ban players who played in the ESL from the World Cup.
