Az UEFA megöli a bajnokságokat? Hétvégi BL-meccsekre számítsunk?


Március 19-én az UEFA és az európai klubcsapatok szövetségének képviselői találkoznak, hogy a Bajnokok Ligája lebonyolítási rendszerének a megváltoztatásáról egyeztessenek.

Javasolt változtatások:
- feljutási/kiesési rendszer bevezetése, mely nagyjából garantálná a nagy és gazdag csapatoknak a folyamatos szereplést
- 32 csapat szerepelne, amiből 4 csapat esne ki
- a mérkőzések hétvégén zajlanának (kínai piac/közönség örömére)
- 4 darab 8 csapatot tartalmazó csoport lenne a jelenlegi 8 csoport helyett, így egy csapat nem kevesebb, mint 14 mérkőzést játszhatna

Kíváncsi vagyok a véleményeitekre, hogy ezt ti hogy látjátok? Közben indítok egy szavazást is.

Közben itt egy hír a mai találkozóról:

Weekend games, promotion and relegation among new Champions League proposals
Adam Nelson
18th March 2019
Uefa and the European Club Association will meet tomorrow (Tuesday) to discuss potential changes to the Champions League, with weekend fixtures and a promotion/relegation system among the proposals.

While talks of a breakaway “Super League” involving the continent’s biggest club football sides have subsided – for now, at least – ways are still being sought to better commercially exploit the Champions League, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Moving games to weekends, allowing fixtures to be played in different time slots and hopefully capture a bigger global television audience, has long been rumoured, and will be discussed at tomorrow’s meeting, described by Juventus chairman and executive member of the ECA Andrea Agnelli as a “brainstorming session”.

A potentially bigger change could come in the form of revisions to the qualifying structure, with some clubs said to be pushing for a more closed system of promotion and relegation. This would offer elite clubs a greater guarantee of receiving Champions League revenue year after year, while avoiding the entirely closed system of the proposed Super League.

The biggest proponents of the changes are said to come from outside England, whose Premier League already offers major financial rewards to all its clubs. As the Daily Telegraph notes, the 20th-placed team in the Premier League currently earns more in television rights and prize money than the first-placed team in France.

Thus the Premier League is expected to protect its own ascendancy before seeking changes to the Champions League. Meanwhile the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are expected to push harder for revisions as they look for ways to build revenues outside their domestic leagues.

Uefa would not comment directly on any of the proposals, but said that it would “hold similar meetings with other stakeholder groups in the coming months, in order to allow for a proper consultation process before drawing up concrete proposals that could be studied more in-depth before any decisions are made.”

Uefa and the ECA are looking to reform European competitions at the same time Fifa is courting the leading European teams to take part in its plans for a revamped Club World Cup. Fifa would like Europe to provide eight club sides to take part in the new quadrennial competition which is being moved from December to the summer months.

However, 15 clubs on the European Club Association’s (ECA) Executive Board signed a letter advising Fifa they would boycott the new competition ahead of last Friday’s Fifa Council in Miami. The letter reiterated the ECA’s position that any potential new competitions can only be made as part of an agreed framework for the international match calendar post-2024.


Előbb utóbb úgy is az lesz amit ők akarnak ha nem holnap akkor holnapután. Mindenütt a pénz diktál.

Folytatódik a mizéria. Hamarosan Budapesten tárgyalnak az európai klubfoci jövőjéről.

Leaked documents suggest Uefa considering semi-closed Champions League

Leaked documents indicate Uefa is considering proposals to restructure the Champions League as a semi-closed competition from 2024 onwards.

The documents, which emerged after a meeting between the governing body and European Leagues earlier this week, propose that 24 of the 32 teams taking part in the group stages of the reformatted competition would retain their places the next year, regardless of their standings in their domestic leagues.

The proposals, revealed by both the New York Times and the Associated Press, would appear to guarantee more lucrative matches for the biggest clubs and make it more difficult for clubs further down the football pyramid to qualify for the competition.

Teams would compete in four groups of eight with the leading four clubs in each group qualifying for the round of sixteen knockout stages under the plans. This would guarantee 14 Champions League games per team rather than the current six thereby generating more revenues for the competing clubs. Teams that made it to the final would be expected to play a total of 21 games.

Controversially, just four clubs would be relegated each season into the second-tier Europa League and the four semi-finalists in the Europa League would be promoted to replace them, according to the document.

Only four qualification places would be left open to national champions competing in the preliminary rounds of the competition – a decrease on the current six.

The plans also include provisions for promotion and relegation between the Europa League and Uefa’s third-tier club competition – currently called Europa League 2 – which launches in the 2021-22 season. While this competition is scheduled to kick off with a 32-team format, this would be increased to 64 teams under the proposals.

Promotion and relegation between the three European competitions would cut across the principle of clubs qualifying for the Champions League through their national leagues and will likely set Uefa on a collision course with European Leagues, the body which represents domestic leagues across Europe.

On Monday and Tuesday this week European Leagues organised a meeting with these clubs to try to prepare a joint position on key issues ahead of a meeting on Wednesday with Uefa where the governing body was expected to reveal its plans for club competitions post-2024. The leaked document is thought to have emerged from the second meeting.

European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli is known to be in favour of an expanded Champions League and is thought to be an advocate of promotion and relegation between European competitions.

At a press conference following the ECA general assembly in March, Agnelli, who is also the chairman of Serie A club Juventus, said: “It [promotion and relegation] is something that is natural within the football environment. In the coming months we will discuss if that, and to what extent, can be increased within Europe. But it’s certainly something that is logical to an open system. It’s logical in every country, it might be logical internationally.”

Some of the biggest clubs from the European continent are also thought to be calling for more European games to close the gap on clubs in the English Premier League and the feeling is they have repeatedly used the threat of a breakaway European Super League to extract greater concessions from Uefa.

Last November German publication Der Speigel said it had seen a “binding term sheet” for a 16-team Super League. The semi-closed structure of the competition was explicitly based on Euroleague Basketball’s top-tier EuroLeague, which is not entirely closed to try to avoid violating European competition law.

Uefa said it would not comment on its plans until briefing its member federations on May 17 in Budapest.

Earlier this week, Uefa president Aleksander Čeferin said reports regarding the future make-up of European football’s elite club competitions would be speculative while discussions with stakeholders are ongoing. The governing body has added that it will not comment any further on its plans until briefing its member federations on May 17 in Budapest.
