Information appeared on the design of the new Champions League, which can be implemented as early as 2024. Reports on "Soviet sport".
According to France 24, the format of "four groups of eight teams" can now be included in the group stage of the tournament, which will increase the number of matches in the European competition.
The five best teams from each group automatically qualify for the next tournament draw. As for the national leagues, they are categorically opposed to this reform.
"I will emphasize: despite the many discussions in the media, nothing has been decided yet, now we only have ideas and opinions," said UEFA Chairman Alexander Cheferin.
As reported by Strana, the current head of UEFA, Alexander Cheferin, was re-elected president of UEFA for a new four-year term. He will lead European football to 2023. All national federations voted for him unanimously. Moreover, the 51-year-old Cheferin was the only candidate for this position.
Remember that UEFA is the best player in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Fans of Europe gave the title of winner, Barcelona striker Lionel Messi, who scored a double in a fantastic style and assisted in the return match against Manchester United. As a result, Barca won 3: 0 (4: 0 on the sum of two games – approx. Red.) And went on to the semi-finals, where he will play with Liverpool.
Earlier, "Country" reported that UEFA showed a new Champions League ball – 2018/2019, made in the colors of Kiev Dynamo.
