FRANKFURT (GERMANY) – The association of European football leagues (EPFL) is "strongly opposed" to the reform of the Champions League and asks UEFA to return "to a more equitable format", reserving less space for representatives of those countries that currently they have four guaranteed seats. But the Serie A and the Bundesliga vote against.
This was the announcement made after the board meeting, which also asked to 'protect' the weekends in the future, reserving them only for national championship matches, excluding the Saturday of the Champions League final.
The group of the 28 leagues that are part of this association will reiterate their positions in view of the UEFA Executive on December 3 in Dublin, which will talk about the possible changes in European competitions, with the possible creation of a third Cup, to 32 teams.
Epfl works in particular on the front of the Champions League, which must be "fairer" and guarantee "greater profits" to everyone, and not just to English, Italians, Spaniards and Germans.
