Borussia Dortmund has announced that they will not participate in the proposed Super League.

On Sunday, plans for a new European competition were announced, with 12 founding clubs already committing to the competition, which is intended to compete with the existing Champions League.

Three more clubs are expected to be added to the founders’ list shortly, with a further five teams due to be admitted if they meet certain qualification criteria – but Dortmund has distanced themselves from the project.

In an official statement, BVB chief executive Hans Joachim Watzke stated the club’s position on the Super League, as well as stating that the club is fully supportive of the proposed Champions League changes that are scheduled to be voted on this week.

“On Sunday evening, the European Club Association (ECA) board members convened for a virtual meeting, where it was decided that the board’s decision from last Friday stands,” Watzke said.

“With this decision, all clubs must agree to implement the proposed UEFA Champions League reforms.” The ECA board of directors took a firm stand against the creation of a Super League.”

“Both German clubs on the ECA board, FC Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, shared exactly the same stance in all discussions,” Watzke continued, confirming rumors that Bayern Munich had also opted out of the competition.
