[NEWS] Report: Chelsea could be banned from entering Champions League next season following UEFA statement

UEFA has threatened to ban clubs from playing in any domestic ,

breakaway European Super League — and Chelsea are one of the
teams involved in the plans, according to Sky Sports.

The Sky Sport report mentioned that six English clubs are involved
in the plans, including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and

Other European giants, such as Real Madrid, Barcelona and
Juventus, have also reportedly agreed to take part in the plans.
Amid the reports about a planned announcement of the European
Super League, UEFA, along with the English FA, Premier League,
Spanish FA (RFEF), La Liga, Italian FA (FIGC) and Lega Serie A,
have released a joint statement on Sunday.

“We wish to reiterate that we will remain united in our efforts to
stop this cynical project — a project that is founded on the self-
interest of a few clubs at a time when society needs solidarity
more than ever,” the official statement reads.

“We will consider all measures available to us, at all levels, both
judicial and sporting in order to prevent this happening.

clubs concerned will be banned from playing in any other
competition at domestic, European or world level, and their players
could be denied the opportunity to represent their national teams.”
