The decision means UEFA can pursue action against the three rebel clubs – who have remained with the Super League project if it wishes to do so.

But it is thought unlikely at this stage that UEFA will pursue punishment, with the European Court of Justice case yet to be heard. The ECJ will decide whether the Super League is protected by EU law.

‘UEFA has today received the order of the Madrid court, lifting the precautionary measures in their entirety,’ UEFA said in a statement. ‘UEFA welcomes this decision and is considering its implications. UEFA will not be making any further comment for the time being.’

The lifting of the injunction comes more than a year after 12 breakaway teams announced plans to form their own Super League, which were met with widespread condemnation across the game.

Six Premier League teams were among the nine clubs who withdrew from the plans just days after they came to light.
