The new European Super League has now been officially suspended on Tuesday after all six Premier League clubs formally withdrew from the new league, MySportDab reports.
Chelsea fans appiled more pressure on the club after a mass protest outside Stamford Bridge before their Premier League match against Brighton.
Manchester City and Chelsea are the first clubs to consider pulling out of the Super League less than 48 hours after it’s official announcement.
This led to more pressure on the other 10 founder clubs to do the same.
On Tuesday evening, Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, one of the main players of the new league, announced his resignation.
And, before Tuesday night ended, Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal and Tottenham all announced their withdrawal from the Super League.
A statement from the Super League said that it ‘will reconsider the most appropriate steps to reshape the project’.
The Chelsea match on Tuesday which ended goalless but was delayed after hundreds of fans protested at the club stadium.
The new developments in England appeared to kill off the planned Super league from start.
According to MySportDab sources, all the clubs that pulled out could face financial penalties for breaching their ESL contract signed last week.
Chelsea and City were never fully convinced by the project at hand.
