Super League soccer company gets new CEO to revive plan


AP Sports Writer

GENEVA (AP) — The Super League project that aims to revolutionize European soccer has hired a new top executive to steer a revived plan after a failed launch last year. German former television boss Bernd Reichart is the new CEO of A22 Sports Management. The Madrid-based company worked with 12 clubs from Spain, England and Italy in a bid to launch the breakaway league in April 2021. His hiring comes as A22 and Super League holdouts Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus await a European Court of Justice ruling in their challenge to UEFA. They claim Champions League organizer UEFA has monopoly control over international competitions in Europe.
