NUST release official statement on the European Super League plans

A statement from the Newcastle United Supporters Trust (NUST) on the European Super League:


Yesterday saw the announcement of a breakaway European Super League– including Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea from the Premier League.

The Newcastle United Supporters Trust is totally opposed to the proposals, we have contacted Newcastle United and expressed to the club in the strongest possible terms that they must do all they can to oppose the new super league. As a member of the European Club Association, Newcastle United are well placed to work with other clubs and key stakeholders to oppose this abhorrent development.

The motivation behind this so-called super league is nothing more than greed. 

This competition is being created behind our backs by club owners who have zero regard for the game’s traditions and continue to treat football and football supporters with disdain. 

We will stand together with The Football Supporters Association, and the Trusts from those club involved, who has been betrayed by their owners, against the European Super League proposal. 

As football fans, if we work together we have more power than we realise. We recently launched the 1892 Pledge scheme, to raise as much money as possible to enable us to be in a position to buy a stake in our football club when the club is next sold – find out more and pledge today at 

The demand for fan involvement in their football club is now greater than ever. We are the life and soul of our clubs. We are its beating heart, it doesn’t survive without us.

  1. This is definitely a case of fans getting above themselves.

    Who gives a toss what NUST think about Super League?


  2. GET A GRIP – they aren’t on about leaving the Premiership (!!??)

    It’s JUST leaving the Champions league = it’s just about money AS WE’LL trying to stop this!

    Then we have BBC Pundits waffling on about it’s all about money = what Hippocrates = they are fleecing the public (everyone including fans and elderly people)

    Get rid of the BBC should be the politician’s first concern AS THEY are only getting involved for votes to continue stuffing their pockets and claiming back TV Licences, Extra houses that they don’t give back at the end BUT sell the London properties and keep the ££££££££££

    Look it’s just the CHAMPION LEAGUE –
