Twelve of Europe's top football clubs say they are launching a breakaway Super League.
The clubs involved include Liverpool, Manchester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Juventus.
Fans and politicians have condemned the announcement.
Former players have also been critical, including former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy.
"It's beyond belief actually that they can think that they can put this idea forward and for it just to be brought in smoothly and everyone to accept it. There's just a complete lack of understanding of our game, our traditions, what we love about football, what's in our hearts when we go watch football and when we play in the game."
The teams say the plan will help resolve finances badly damaged by the coronavirus pandemic.
The European football governing body, UEFA, has threatened to ban the clubs and players involved.
