As twelve European clubs made a joint decision to start a closed competition with the European Super League, the German FA & Bundesliga hierarchy have effectively so far denied to be part of the rogue competition.


BVB Dortmund, who are a powerhouse of the sport with the nation alongside Bayern Munich, have now made a statement.

Hans-Joachim Watzke, Dortmund’s managing director released a statement on behalf of the club, stating: "The members of the board of the European Club Association (ECA) got together for a virtual conference on Sunday evening and confirmed that the board decision of last Friday is still valid i.e this decision means that the clubs want to implement the planned reform of the UEFA Champions League. It was the clear opinion of the members of the ECA Board that the plans to establish a Super League were rejected."

Adding further, the statement mentioned: "Both German clubs that are represented on the ECA Board, FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, represented 100 percent congruent views in all discussions."

The idea for the competition has been met with extreme backlash from most of the footballing world.
