European Super League: Proposed annual football club competition
The Super League, organised by the European Super League Company, S.L. and commonly referred to as the European Super League (ESL), was a proposed annual club football competition to be contested by twenty European football clubs. This league was conceived to comprise fifteen "founding clubs" – permanent participants in the competition and governing partners – alongside five other European football clubs who could qualify based upon their performance in their domestic league's most recent season. It was planned as a breakaway competition to rival or replace the UEFA Champions League, Europe's premier club football tournament organised by UEFA.
