UEFA decides on European Cup

The controversial Champions League reform again heats the minds before the UEFA congress. The executive committee already clarified on Tuesday, but made concessions.

The controversial reform of the Champions League is tackled – but in a weakened form. This decision was made by the Executive Committee of the European Football Union (UEFA) on Tuesday, one day before the 46th congress.

The original idea, according to which two of the four additional starting places over a five-year ranking of the clubs should be awarded from 2024, was rejected after severe criticism.

UEFA's Plans To RUIN The Champions League
Instead, these additional places will go to the countries whose teams have best cut off in the previous European Cup season. If the current season were brought in, England and the Netherlands would receive another Champions League starting site.

“We are convinced that the selected format leads to a real balance and generation of solid income that is distributed to the clubs, leagues and the football base guarantees,” said Uefa President Aleksander Ceferin.

From the 2024/25 season, the new mode of the Champions League provides for an increase from currently 32 to 36 participants, the competition is played in the so -called “Swiss model” according to the suggestion of the EXKO.

Champions League reform: fans went to the barricades

The other two additional places go from the league to the third-placed people, who took fifth place in the UEFA ranking and to a national champion about the so-called “Champions Path”. The number of four to five is increased there.

The fans went to the barricades and did not want concessions for the big clubs. The Exko developed a compromise. In addition to the wildcards, however, the increase in the number of preliminary round games from six to ten initially caused violent displeasure. Now it will be “only” eight.

The preference of the powerful and finest clubs by the UEFA to prevent the large -scale outbreak of the large -scale outburst into a super league was a thorn in the side of the fan base. It is simply “unfair and contrary to competitive,” emphasized Football Supporters Europe.

This adaptation would “represent an unjustified second chance for some big clubs,” said European Leagues: “Sporty merits in the local leagues must be the only access to European competitions.” And the resistance had an effect.

Eintracht Frankfurt: Hellmann soon at UEFA?

“Today UEFA has clearly shown that we respect the fundamental values of sport and defend the core principles of sporting competition,” said Ceferin.

On Tuesday, the Executive Committee set the course, the mighty union of the ECA elite clubs had previously signaled approval. “Glock the presentation of the UEFA managers” and hope “to the best possible result for European football”, the ECA said after a meeting in Madrid.

With the royal class reform, the most important question has already been clarified before the congress, but from a German perspective, a question of personnel should still be exciting. According to information from the kicker, Eintracht Frankfurt’s board spokesman Axel Hellmann should replace the failed DFB presidential candidate Peter Peters in the UEFA’s clever liatization committee.
