BRUSSELS: A possible future European Super League will not be able to register “Super League” as a trademark in the European Union after a ruling in favour of the Danish Superligaen, a trademark jointly owned by Danish clubs.

Reuter reported satisfaction of the league after the legal opportunism.

European Super League Company S.L. has attempted to register its trademark in the EU but Superligaen believed that this would be an infringement.

Superliga ceo Claus Thomsen said: “We are very happy that the EU’s trademark authority has agreed that the trademark ‘THE SUPER LEAGUE’ in the EU will violate the value that the Danish clubs have invested in 3F Superliga.”

The European Super League, assisted by sports development company A22, can appeal the decision.
