User Rating: 0 (0 votes)

Following the birth of a breakaway Super League by 12 notable clubs in three countries of England, Spain and Italy, Uefa on Monday (April 19) confirmed that a new format for the Champions League will be introduced from 2024 with the number of clubs in the group stage increasing from 32 to 36.

This is coming on the heel of an earlier announcement that 12 major clubs were planning to break away and start a rival Super League.

The new format – which will see all 36 clubs brought together into one pool instead of the current system of four-team groups – was approved at an executive committee meeting of European football’s governing body in Switzerland.
