Less than a week after being announced, the European Super League looks dead in the water.

All six English Premier League clubs that were meant to take part in the competition have pulled out.

It comes after criticism and protest by football fans in the UK, with Boris Johnson and Prince William among the many who spoke out against it.

Hamish Girvan from the Kiwi Spurs - Tottenham Hotspur's official New Zealand supporters club, joined Heather du Plessis-Allan earlier today.

“How it was pulled together was pretty average to be fair, there was little consultation. It kind of just happened and I guess that’s what rankled fans of most clubs,” he said.
