The money is chump change but the clubs will care about the 30 point deduction.

Why?

If they form a Super League and lose 30 points, they'll just leave their old league.

It practically ensures if it happens again there's no backing down.

Indeed, having just typed that, I would be completely unsurprised if that suggestion started with the breakaway clubs.

Conveniently left out the 30 point penalty that they'll incur if they ever try it again. That would have relegated Spurs and Arsenal this year and taken the other 4 out of Champions League places for next year. That's a way bigger financial hit than a monetary fine.

They should have done that this year. If they break away again, they are gone.

Which, as noted earlier, really guarantees they pull the damn trigger.

I think that would have caused more issues, since there wasn't really a rule saying they couldn't do it. The Court for Arbitration in Sport would probably have overturned any actual loss of points if they're levied them this past season.

I think their message is very clear now though.
