Uefa suspends disciplinary proceedings against Real, Barca and Juve

Uefa said the suspension of disciplinary proceedings was temporary

Uefa's independent appeals body has suspended disciplinary proceedings against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus over their attempt to launch a breakaway Super League, European football's governing body said Wednesday.

Uefa opened a probe against the three clubs on May 25, but said it suspended proceedings after being notified by the Swiss authorities of a court order from the commercial court in Madrid obtained by the legal entity European Super League Company SL.

The Madrid court last month asked the European Court of Justice to establish if Fifa and Uefa were breaching European Union competition law by preventing the clubs from creating a breakaway European Super League.

The commercial court also asked Europe's top court if Fifa and Uefa are able to impose restrictions or penalties on clubs who remain part of the planned competition.

The court also passed a holding order that Fifa, Uefa and all its associated federations must not adopt "any measure that prohibits, restricts, limits or conditions in any way" the Super League.

Uefa said the suspension of disciplinary proceedings was temporary.

The Super League was announced in April by 12 founding clubs but collapsed less than 48 hours after it was launched following an outcry by fans, governments, players and managers.

Nine clubs - Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid - officially withdrew and accepted financial penalties from Uefa for their part in the process.

Three of the founders - Real, Barca and Juve - have not distanced themselves from the project.
