UEFA opens probe into remaining ESL teams

The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) confirmed on Wednesday it has opened a disciplinary probe into Real Madrid CF, FC Barcelona, and Juventus FC over their enduring commitment to the European Super League (ESL).

The organization said its inspectors will investigate if those three clubs have made a "potential violation" of its legal framework. Apart from financial fines, the teams are facing a potential two-year ban from the UEFA's competitions.

Earlier this month, the UEFA sanctioned nine of the twelve founders of the ESL after they agreed to abandon the competition and reintegrate into the association. Despite that, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Juventus reaffirmed their commitment to the tournament and stressed they were ready to face "appropriate action."
