Man United & Arsenal Slam Plans To Change Champions League Format

 

Arsenal and Manchester United supporters’ groups have accused their own clubs of being involved in a “blatant power grab” over plans to reform the Champions League.

The clubs are part of the European Club Association (ECA), which meets on Friday to see if it can sign off on UEFA’s plans which would increase the number of Champions League matches from 125 to 225.

 

The ECA’s chairman Andrea Agnelli – who holds the same role at Juventus – has described the new format, where each team would play at least four extra group-stage matches compared to now, as “ideal”.

 

UEFA’s proposals also controversially include plans which would effectively provide Europe’s most successful clubs with a safety net should they miss out on qualification via domestic performance.

 

However, it is understood some ECA members are still pushing for greater commercial control of the new competition.
