translated from Spanish: UEFA on the Super League: “Players will not be able to represent their teams”

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin warned The creative clubs of the European Super League that if they choose to move forward with their idea, their players “will not be able to represent their teams” or “participate in Euros or World Cups,” and called the project “shameful and selfish,” the result of the “greed” of a few.” My opinion is that, as soon as possible, clubs and players have to be kicked out of all our competitions. Players participating in the Super League will not be able to represent their teams or participate in Euro or World Cups,” he said after monday’s UEFA Executive Committee meeting. In addition, Ceferin acknowledged that “yet” they are assessing possible immediate measures and sanctions with the legal team of the governing body of European football. “But we will take as much action as we can and inform them as soon as possible,” he said. Monday’s meeting was scheduled to confirm the format change of the expanded Champions League, but the European Super League has focused all the prominence. “UEFA and the world of football are united against the shameful and selfish proposal we have seen in the last 24 hours for a few select clubs in Europe, motivated by greed. We are all united against this pointless project,” he said. APPROVED THE NEW ‘CHAMPIONS’ FORMAT On the other hand, UEFA confirmed that the Champions League will move from 32 to 36 teams from 2024, after accepting the European Club Association (ECA) proposal, which will cause each participating team to play at least ten matches. In addition, the eight groups that until now marked the group stage disappear. The move is taken to enable teams to have more matches in the first phase, as 100 matches are added to the tournament; the teams will be placed in a single group with the 36 participants, according to a “Swiss model”, and will play at least 10 matches according to their ranking. The top eight will have a direct ticket to the eighth round, while the other eight will be decided by a Playoff; those who are eliminated in it will play the Europa League, as is currently the case with the third qualifiers of the group stage.
