FIGC President Gabriele Gravina has warned Juventus that they will be banned from participating in Serie A next season if they do not withdraw from the European Super League.

are the only clubs not to have officially withdrawn from the Super League.

The three clubs will face UEFA sanctions if they don't withdraw from the ESL, with the punishment of a ban from domestic competition.

Gabriele Gravina

, president of the FIGC, told

Radio Kiss Kiss

: "The rules are clear. If Juventus is still part of the Super League when it enters next season, it can't participate in Serie A.

"I would be sorry for the fans but rules are rules and they apply to everyone.

"I hope this holdout ends soon."

Gravina confirmed that Juventus are not locked out of the Italian top flight in 2021-22, with further talks planned between all parties to reach an agreement.

The FIGC supremo added to

Radio Anch'io Sport

: "They are simple principles, affirmed by the Olympic Charter and then reported by the statutes of national and international federations.

"They are clear principles, in which the exclusivity of sport management is established. I hope that this dispute can be resolved as soon as possible.
