Amazon Prime Video has joined fellow Premier League broadcasters Sky Sports and BT Sport in distancing itself from the proposed European Super League.
Both Sky Sports and BT Sport had earlier come out against the breakaway league, leaving some discussion over the streaming platform’s position on the competition.
However, Prime Video has now joined its rivals with a statement that refutes ties to the plan.
The company stated: “Amazon Prime Video understands and shares the concerns shared by football fans regarding a breakaway Super League.
“We have not been involved in any discussions for this proposed Super League. We are proud to offer our Prime members the football which matters most to the many to present the action in the most innovative ways, including UEFA Champions League football in Germany and Italy and Premier League football in the UK.”
Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Juventus had announced their intentions to start a European Super League earlier this week.
With games slated to take place mid-week, the competition would replace the Champions League while teams ostensibly continued to play in their domestic leagues.
However, strong statements against the plan from the likes of UEFA, the Premier League, other clubs, and fans have created a situation where it is unknown if the plan will go ahead.
