UEFA Approves Creation Of Third Club Competition

UEFA Approves Creation Of Third Club Competition

However, the new competition is created to appease those further down the food chain unhappy at changes to guarantee English, Spanish, German and Italian clubs 16 of the 32 places available in the Champions League.

UEFA will fast-track the implementation of Video Assistant Referees for the knockout stages of its Champions League this season, its president Aleksander Ceferin said on Monday.

A statement from European football's governing body added: "Uefa still plans to subsequently extend the use of VAR at the final tournament of Uefa Euro 2020, in the 2020-21 Uefa Europa League (group stage onwards), and in the 2021 Uefa Nations League Finals".

With the plans briefly outlined by a member of European football's governing body, the new competition is now referred to by the working title "UEL2", abbreviated from Uefa European League 2.

The new tournament will be played on Thursdays alongside the Europa League.

The Europa League group stage, meanwhile, will be reduced from 48 teams to 32.

Citizens urged to get tested for HIV
Globally, 15- to 24-year-old women are twice as likely as young men to be infected. She added, "Access to confidential HIV testing is still an issue of concern".

Eight groups of four will then proceed to a round of 16 knockout. This competition was borne out of ongoing dialogue with clubs through the European Club Association. There will be more matches for more clubs, with more associations represented in the group stages.

An increased minimum financial guarantee for all clubs in the UEFA Europa League and the new competition has also been included.

The new European competition will offer one Premier League club the chance to participate with various other teams from around the continent.

UEFA said that the Champions League would remain unaltered, meaning that the four top-ranked leagues - now Spain, England, Germany and Italy - would each keep four guaranteed places in the group stage.

The introduction of the new tournament does not affect the Champions League's format at all.
