At the end of the 2023-2024 UEFA Champions League season, the current contract for TV rights and sponsorship ends.
Many clubs are pushing for a change to the look of the Champions League, and UEFA appears to be listening at last.
Thus, at the meeting on Thursday between representatives of the European Union and several leaders of the Premier League, a plan for the new format of the Champions League was presented. Athletic is presenting the changes to be made to the most important competition between European clubs.
First of all, the group stage will disappear from the league. The number of teams will increase to 36 from 32 now, but the additional places will not reach the “poor”. Romania is definitely waiting.
Depending on the deal-based tie, each team will play 10 fall matches: 5 at home and 5 outside.
The first 8 ranked clubs at the end of 10 matches automatically go to the “eighth” Champions League, while the next 16 clubs offer qualifiers for the remaining eight.
What do the giants want with this step? Of course, more money. More knockout matches, higher stakes, and much higher entries.
