Ben Van Rompuy interviewed by various media on European Super League proposal

When the plans for a breakaway Super League in European football were announced this weekend, governing body UEFA threatened to ban all participating clubs and players.

Ben Van Rompuy, Assistant Professor of EU competition law, was interviewed by various national and international news media - such as the Financial Times, Bloomberg news, Politico, de Volkskrant, De Morgen, and BBC World Service - on the compatibility of those threats with the European antitrust rules.

He stressed that EU competition law in itself cannot resolve the dispute, not in the least because it is a double-edged sword: both the Super League and the UEFA can find very valid arguments to back their case that the other party is restricting competition.
