The Super League is a new European competition with a 20-team league made up of 15 permanent members with the remaining five members of the league comprised of teams that qualified through domestic European League competition.
The super league delivers thrilling excitement and drama that has never been seen in football before. They bring together the top clubs and top players in the world.

Which distinguished teams are not included?
Several European biggest teams have not signed officially onto the project. Borussia Dortmund CEO, Hans Joachim Watzke said his club has no intention of joining in the next couple of weeks. RB Leipzig won’t be joining.
Watzke also did stress that “both German clubs on the ECA board, FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, did share the same stance throughout the discussions.”
FC Bayern did not take part in the planning of a Super League. We are then convinced that the current statics in football guarantee a serious basis. FC Bayern indeed welcomes the reforms of the Champions League because they believe that they are the right step for the development of European football.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, is the first head of the Super League who will serve as chairman. He’s also supported by two vice-chairmen. Here’s the full list below:

Financial Backing of The Super League
The estimated earnings for fixtures signing up to the proposed Super League are at least about $425 million. Each of the permanent members of the proposed Super League is promised €350 million ($425 million) to sign up, per documents that are obtained by the New York Times.
JP Morgan Chase & Co. were allegedly approached to raise funding for the project that has seen FIFA back UEFA by intimidating to ban players involved in such a league from future World Cup competition.
