Full Text:

UEFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against three European giants: Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus. The teams were part of a larger group of 12 that announced they wanted to start a new competition.

Their idea received heavy criticism. The other nine clubs spread out across the UK, Italy and Spain changed their minds. They expressed regret for their actions and recommitted to the UEFA club.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus then issued a joint statement. They said that they intended to persevere in finding a solution, calling the current football situation “unsustainable.”

UEFA released a statement that they will investigate “a potential violation of UEFA’s legal framework.”

The nine clubs were ordered to collectively donate 15 million euros to charities. In addition, they will not receive five percent of the revenues from competitions as scheduled.

UEFA says the clubs have agreed to be fined up to 100 million euros should they breach their commitments again.

For now, the form of punishment that may await Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus after the disciplinary proceedings is unclear.
