The European Super League (ESL), led by the president of Real Madrid, Florentino Pérez, needs to be stopped at all costs. As a Chelsea fan, I am extremely disappointed in our owner, Roman Abramovich, for joining this greed-driven league despite only joining in fear of being left behind in the Champions League. However, I am also equally relieved that he is now pulling out after the backlash and protests outside Stamford Bridge. The problem with the ESL is that it takes football away from the fans. It is a complete money grab and is the first step in killing football. Another problem is that Perez is not planning on just creating a breakaway league to “save football,” but he also wants to shorten match length. In an interview with El Chiringuito, a Spanish TV show about football, he was quoted as saying, “If young people say football matches are too long, maybe it’s because that match isn’t too interesting or maybe we have to shorten the length of matches.” In response to his comments, young people from all over the world have come out and denied that football matches are neither “too long” nor are they not “too interesting.” I can confidently say that both myself and football fans of all ages are satisfied with the length and entertainment of football matches and that it is best to prevent the ESL from ruining the Beautiful Game. Although Chelsea and the rest of the English clubs have pulled out, there still remain six clubs. It is crucial to the future of football that this league does not happen.
