Jealous UEFA does not want to be left behind after FIFA announces the creation of a new format for Club World Cup. According to the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal, the European football governing body will meet on Tuesday with ECA (European Clubs Association) in Nyon, Switzerland, to discuss «radical changes in the Champions League.»

Among the proposals are the creation of a team relegation and promotion system, as well as the transfer of games to the weekends (currently they take place on Tuesday and Wednesday). There is also talk of possible swelling of the competition, and the British «Telegraph» reports that UEFA must propose a longer format with at least 14 matches for each of the 32 teams.

This change, supported mainly by the big clubs of the Old Continent, will at first harm the main national leagues in Europe, which will lose their relevance (and schedule, if continental games are transferred to the weekends). Last week, including the president of La Liga and strongman of Spanish football, Javier Tebas, criticized Uefa.

– UEFA and ECA are negotiating behind closed doors so that others do not know about the reforms that put the national leagues in jeopardy. They are making reforms in the Champions League very dangerous for football. It is a very damaging model for the national leagues and even for the entities themselves since they do not understand business – he said in an interview published by Reuters on Thursday.

The implementation of this European Super League, however, would not happen before 2024. It is when the current trade agreement between UEFA and ECA, which brings together 109 teams from the Old Continent, including the giants of Spain, England, and Italy, to the current format of the Champions.

New Club World Cup
FIFA announced last Friday the creation of a new Club World Cup, to be played every four years, with the presence of 24 teams. The first edition will be organized in June and July 2021, in a place to be defined, occupying the window left by the Confederations Cup in the world calendar.

The new competition will have 24 clubs: eight from Europe, six from South America and the others divided between the other continents. FIFA has left for each continental confederation to define the classification criteria for the World Cup.

What are your thoughts on this whole new system? I think that it can be great. However, I prefer the way it is. There are still at least 5 seasons of the classic format of the UEFA Champions League, so, who do you think that will win it by 2024? I think Liverpool will win at least one, one Italian also will bag one cup. And how about the new Club World Cup? I think that it’s positive. 100%. European clubs don’t value this competition as it is right now. But in this new format, with only the bests from Europe, South America, and other continents, it can be interesting. However, it will be almost impossible for a South American club to make it to the finals. But let’s see! I think it’s positive!
