It wont be the FA taking action rather UEFA as their prize asset would be replaced, like you say it would be a legal minefield and already there's sounds about UEFA and FIFA banning European super league players from international football. You would imagine this would be not legally enforceable but in the Rugby the English RFU managed to deny international selection to any English Player who played in France to protect the English league so maybe they could.I'm not sure the FA would have any grounds for kicking teams out of the league. Only if it is in a contract could they do it. Plus the ESL would be in place of the Champions League and have no impact on the domestic game. So a lawyer's field day would ensue if the FA take action.
Not saying I support it but looking at the situation without emotion. I'm sure the clubs involved will have taken legal advice.
Didn't rugby union do something similar recently?
The worst thing it is likely there would be no relegation in a US franchise style league, sounds like the other three invited could be Porto, Bayern and PSG,
