The clubs involved are
The clubs Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham Hotspur. Have announced plans to join the competition with Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Juventus.
It is expected that three more clubs will connect the breakaway group as creating members of the new midweek tournament, which the manager said will begin very soon.
Twelve European soccer top clubs have given the format of a coming Super League.
European soccer authorities have majorly criticized the breakaway, fan organizations together with politicians across Europe.
The suggested format
The league will have 20 teams, with 15 founding members joined by five clubs that qualify annually based on their home games achievements.
The 20 teams would be separated into two groups of 10; each side played with the other home and away teams in the midweek fixtures.
The best three clubs from every group would continue for the quarter-finals, having the final two spots paid after a playoff between the teams completing fourth and fifth in their groups.
After the quarter-final stage onwards, a two-legged knockout tie home and away from the new knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League will have a single fixture final in a neutral venue.

The U.S. investment bank JP Morgan agreed on Monday to Reuters that it will be financing the new European league.
In their announcement, the breakaway teams announced the starting members would have to share 3.5 billion euros “solely to boost their infrastructure investment plans and of the offsetting the outbreak of the COVID pandemic.”
Would the league be a close shop?
One of the best points of criticism near the proposal is that only five teams in the 20-strong competition will be allowed based on their sporting achievements.
The remarkable 15 founding clubs will have their participation already guaranteed.
The coming European soccer league will be for more achievements for the clubs qualified to participate in.
