Official statement

Real Sociedad remains committed to working through the ECA together with the rest of the European clubs in defense of the values ​​that define European football. This will only be achieved through the joint work that ECA and UEFA develop. Thanks to this alliance, important progressive governance reforms have already been implemented across the entire football ecosystem in Europe, including new UEFA rules for the prior authorization of competitions. Furthermore, through the ECA, clubs are now at the center of decision-making in relation to the competitions in which they participate.

Respect for domestic leagues is an asset that we cannot under any circumstances lose. We do not understand football as a closed model. We advocate open football with direct access from the domestic leagues and season by season.
