This is not yet a formal exception. But it is a symbolic marginalization. The leaders of the Premier League, the first division of English football, meet on Tuesday morning, April 20, to discuss a follow-up to the proposed European Super League. They would do this without the six English clubs involved in the project, which surprised supporters and football enthusiasts in the UK by watching the last minutes of “Match of the Day”.
