European Super League’s publicity team were subjected to DEATH THREATS in the 48-hour period from the launch of the breakaway league to its collapse
- Football fans have reacted strongly against the European Super League plans
- Death threats were sent to the breakaway league’s PR team this week
- Staff at iNHouse Communications were the subject of vile messages from fans
Death threats were sent to PR workers promoting the European Super League during the 48 hours before the project collapsed on Tuesday evening.
The vision of an invitation-only competition, the brainchild of executives at Manchester United, Real Madrid and Juventus, was ended in the blink of an eye as clubs gave in to the venomous reaction across the game.
Yet it is understood that employees of London-based firm iNHouse Communications, described by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as ‘the Fortnum and Mason of communications’ in a testimonial on the company website, were targeted with vile messages during a tumultuous period for the national game.

Fans have reacted strongly in opposition to the breakaway European league this week
iNHouse was founded in 2006 by former broadcast journalist Jo Tanner and Katie Perrior, who served as Downing Street director of communications from 2016-17, when Theresa May was Prime Minister.
Perrior and Tanner also led the public relations campaign for Mr Johnson’s successful London Mayoral campaign in 2008.
The Super League project was first made public on Sunday night but cracks soon started to appear in the 12-strong group as they started to realise the level of revulsion their idea had inspired across the entire European game.
The controversial league was announced on Sunday but collapsed on Tuesday after fan revolt
All six Premier League clubs to have signed up – Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester City – had withdrawn by Tuesday night, leaving co-founder Andrea Agnelli, the Juventus chairman, to admit on Wednesday that the Super League would not get off the ground.
iNHouse could not be reached for comment on Wednesday night.
