The two of the most successful teams in La Liga, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona might be banned from playing in the domestic league. This is if they carry on with their Super League agenda. The two clubs have been constant supporters of Perez’s idea of a premium football league. They are still in favor of playing in the Super League.
The tournament was founded in 2021 but was never put to work due to protests across the globe from players and football clubs. The criticism revolved around the idea of elitism between football clubs. 20 top clubs playing in a separate competition was considered disrespectful to other clubs playing professional football worldwide.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are the two biggest clubs in Spain. They also are the teams with the most extensive fan base and history in the country. Barcelona won the very first La Liga tournament and Real Madrid has the most domestic championships (35). The two Spanish giants are definitely the biggest clubs in Spain.
Many fans believe that the competition would dry out if the two clubs stopped competing in the league due to the lack of competition. Only clubs like Atletico Madrid and Sevilla come close to the big boys but are still not as consistently dominating in Spain.
