European Soccer is already considered by most people to be the best place to see the most talented soccer players in the world. Europe, though, is divided into several groups of some of the best soccer leagues in the world. These include the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, German Bundesliga, Italian Serie A, and French Ligue 1. There is a new proposal that is being pitched, though.
The proposal comes from Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis. What he proposes is that a new European Super League be formed which draws from the biggest and best teams in the top five soccer leagues in Europe. If other European soccer clubs sign on this would end up becoming one of the biggest soccer revolutions in the world.
The European soccer leagues already attract many of the most talented players in the world. Let’s face it, good soccer players will always want to compete against the best soccer players in the world. This is what helps drive the popularity of the soccer leagues today. This is not just a phenomenon that is unique to soccer. This is something that is true for any athlete in any sport.
Creating a European Super League would only make it that much more difficult for any great soccer player to turn down the opportunity. Of course, the money will not be bad either. Pitting the very best against the very best will only draw larger crowds and generate even more revenue for each soccer club. This will in turn give these European soccer superpowers even more leverage to attract the very best athletic talent in the world.
Will this be a revolution in the soccer world? Any logical person can certainly understand the case that is being made. Only time will tell if this indeed happens.
