However, these proposals have received a lot of backlash, with the UEFA and Premier League threatening to ban the clubs from other competitions.

The Premier League has issued the following statement after the news broke of five clubs signing up for the European Super League – which includes Arsenal.
The statement makes it clear that this won’t be tolerated and the UEFA’s press release worsen things:
One of the biggest points in the release above is that the participating clubs could be banned from playing in the domestic leagues – which is a huge hit for those interested.

It could potentially mean the Gunners being banned from the Premier League if we continue to push for the new reforms – which could change the game as we know it.
