Less than a week after European soccer seemed set for a breakaway league, similar to Australian rugby league, the plan appears dead and buried.

After outcries from fans, players and even governments, the project – which Real Madrid president Florentino Pérez claimed would save football – is dead.

To the equity markets, where the ASX is teetering around the 7000 point mark. It’s currently at 7,005 points as at 11.50am – a 0.11 per cent gain from yesterday.
