Of fans aged over 55, just 10% said they would be happy about the idea, with a whopping 63% unhappy.
Across all ages, 30% of fans were happy about the idea of a European Super League, with 40% unhappy. 35% of fans aged 55 and over said they felt a breakaway league would be "very bad" for football overall - that figure was just 10% for those aged 18-34.
A fifth (20%) of young fans apparently believe the European Super League would be a "very good" idea for football overall. Just 6% of older fans agree.
A European Super League has more support with women than men too - 48% of male fans are unhappy at the prospect of a breakaway tournament, more than double that of female football fans (23%).
The poll also looked at support from fans of specific clubs and at which areas of the United Kingdom have the most support for the idea. 46% of fans from London think a breakaway league would be a good idea for football overall, compared with 36% in the north west and 29% in the north east. The lowest support for a European Super League comes from the east of the UK.
