On the basis of their popularity?




In my opinion, that's ridiculous. I always thought that qualification for the CL was dependent on what a club achieved on the pitch, not how many clicks it gets on social media. I won't bother bringing up the fact that they aren't in Europe, as there is a precedent for non-European clubs playing in the CL. Maccabi Haifa, for example. Unless there's some underlying reason for them to be playing in European, rather than Asian club competition.


And I don't suppose there'd be any financial incentive for UEFA to invite Al-Nassr into the CL?

CL Setting a very dangerous precedent. Wonder who will be next. Anything not on merit is the fat lady warming up her tonsils imho.
 
I don’t have a fundamental problem with this, as Azerbaijani and Israeli teams already play in the CL.

They should have to comply fully with FFP rules for the 3 year rolling period before they are allowed to enter though.
Registered to UEFA, that’s why. Saudi Arabia isn’t.
 
Well Saudi will just keep putting £££ in front of who make the decisions! Till they get the spot!
