Toulouse will play well in the Europa League even though Milan, Aston Villa and Brighton also have the go-ahead

After the victory of the Coupe de France, there was doubt. UEFA squandered the match on Friday. Toulouse, whose participation in the Europa League has been threatened by Milan’s presence in the Champions League, and with which it shares a majority stake, RedBird Capital Partners, will be part of C3 this season. And this despite European football’s governing body very clear rules on the subject: no two clubs owned by the same entity can participate in the same competition. Nor in two different European leagues, where AC Milan, who qualifies in C1, can be transferred to the Europa League if they finish third in their group.

The changes to Téfécé were clearly enough to convince UEFA. Jerry Cardinale, founder of the American investment fund that owns the club, left the board in early June. Subsequently, Alec Shiner, Isaac Halliard and Neeraj Shah left the Toulouse Board of Directors. Thus, no member of RedBird Capital Partners is a direct part of the organizational scheme. The team also determines that a split project will be in the cards between Toulouse and AC Milan at company level.

According to UEFA’s sole requirements, it would be impossible for players to pass between the two clubs, whether by direct sale or in the form of a loan. Each structure will have to ensure the independence of its administrative units.

Aston Villa and Brighton are in the same boat

UEFA also shut down without sanctioning the measure targeting other clubs. Aston Villa and Portuguese club Vitória (both C4 qualifiers), which share businessmen Nassef Sawiris and Wesley Edens as joint shareholders, will be able to compete well on the European stage. Just like Brighton and Union Royal St Giloise, which share Tony Bloom among their shareholders.
