Champions League – New format approaching



Champions League – It’s only a matter of time before UEFA announces a format change. The world’s most important tournament will change for the 2024-25 season with a shocking final table. To generate more revenue, there will be a Final Four at a single venue.

UEFA will hold its annual congress in Vienna on 11 May. One topic stands out above the rest even though it is not on the agenda of the day. And it is the new competition format of the Champions League from 2024.

Announced at the time, with a kind of virtual League as opposed to the Super League project. The reality is that the idea did not convince. And it is a fact that variants are being sought to give a boost to the competition.

Weeks ago, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, president of PSG and the Club Association, spoke of the idea of holding a Final Four in the chosen host city. The idea is taking shape and could be the first of the changes already announced.

At the same time, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin himself spoke of May as the time when something more could be finalized. And that also contemplates the entry of two invited teams for what has been done in the last five years. Something that was raised by the big clubs in a supposed Super League.

Will it bring greater economic benefits?

UEFA suggests that the loss of the classic return leg (one ticket for each team) when the semi-final is played on neutral ground would be offset by the economic impact of the week-long competition. This would generate greater television and commercial appeal.

UEFA is also studying the possibility that the fifth best-performing league after England, Spain, Italy and Germany will have an extra place.

The format approved at the time speaks of 10 matches in the group stage. Playing the same number of home and away matches. But the opponents would not necessarily have to coincide. The final classification would be global and not by groups. The first eight of the 36 participating teams would advance directly to the Round of 16.
