Exclude ESL Clubs From Domestic Leagues & Make Them Pay – Poll Saw Fans Vote for Sanctions

Fifty-one percent of respondents said that the club themselves – that is Manchester City, Chelsea, and Atletico among others - should be punished.

Thirteen percent suggested that the players – such as Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi - should pay the price for the decision of their clubs to join ESL.

​If disciplinary action was to be taken, half of fans think clubs founding the ESL should be expelled from domestic leagues as well as suffer financial penalties.

Deduction in points in domestic leagues and removal of existing domestic league titles could also serve the ESL clubs right, said the fans. Only ten percent said there should not be any consequences for the ESL member clubs.

Among all football fans, only 21% would be interested to watch ESL games, while among fans of Premier League teams outside the big six - comprising Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur - interest is even lower (13%).

​Amid overwhelming condemnation of the ESL, the big six have dropped out the exclusive competition, following backlash from fans and government criticism.

On Wednesday, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan and Juventus joined their English counterparts, leaving only Spanish clubs - Real Madrid and Barcelona – to still be officially involved.
