The Super League (or European Super League Company) is a new sports association that includes 20 football clubs (15 permanent and 5 applying for membership). It is also an annual top-level competition between the two, competing with the UEFA Champions League. It appeared in the spring of 2021. Florentino Pérez became its first chairman.
Meaning and History
In April 2021, 12 teams established an international football organization. Then three more joined them. These 15 clubs will be permanent members of The Super League and its leaders. Each year they will be joined by five applicants based on their last year’s performance. According to the representatives of the highest football association in Europe, the competition will be held shortly, about which the relevant negotiations are already underway.
The need for a league has been discussed since 1998. And on April 18, 2021, a press release was published announcing its creation. This was announced ahead of the UEFA meeting. The old organization wanted to update and expand the UEFA Champions League starting in the 2004/2005 season to increase the number of matches and increase revenues.
In his speech, Florentino Pérez stressed that the new association would help athletes regain the level of income lost due to the coronavirus pandemic. There is a special system of raising and lowering, which will certainly appeal to young football fans. This measure is expected to improve refereeing and VAR.
The press release also claims the Super League will provide additional financial resources, better competition, and substantial economic growth in support of European football. In addition to men’s matches, it is planned to hold women’s matches shortly.
The logo of the newest sports organization is simple and minimal. At the same time, it looks conceptually and powerful since it consists of an inscription combined in the form of a fragment of a pyramid – a ladder that expands in the lower part, forming a symbolic platform. This directly echoes the concept behind the football league.
The full name of the association is used as the text – “The Super League.” All letters are the same and are in uppercase. The lines are aligned to the left, making it possible to conveniently use the logo on flags and posters since, according to language rules, all words are read from left to right. The organization offers two equivalent logo options: monochrome with a neutral white background and color with a wide black rectangle.
Font and Color of the Emblem
The text is executed in a sleek modern grotesque with wide letters, precise angles, and straight lines. The typeface used is reminiscent of the Bw Nista International Black and Kamerik 205 Text Heavy fonts with minimal modifications.
The branded palette consists of black and white. The first is the two lower rows; the second is the upper one. In the other version (colored, with a dark background), the lines “Super” and “League” are white, and “The” is a neon gradient from light blue to dark pink.
