Manchester United's co-chairman Joel Glazer is confirmed as the vice-chairman of the newly-formed European Super League.

Manchester United's co-chairman Joel Glazer has been confirmed as the vice-chairman of the newly-formed European Super League.

A statement on Sunday evening revealed that twelve of the biggest clubs in European football, including six from the Premier League, had come together to form the controversial competition.

Joel Glazer will be the vice-chairman of the Super League, and the 54-year-old has said that the tournament "will open a new chapter for European football".

"By bringing together the world's greatest clubs and players to play each other throughout the season, the Super League will open a new chapter for European football, ensuring world-class competition and facilities, and increased financial support for the wider football pyramid," read the statement.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has been confirmed as the chairman of the Super League, while Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli will join Joel Glazer as a vice-chairman.

The new format will rival the Champions League but does not plan to be a replacement for domestic leagues.

Along with Man United, Real Madrid and Juventus, five more English clubs have been confirmed as members, with Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur all committed.

Meanwhile, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan and Inter Milan are also founding members.
