I'm not entirely against it because I enjoyed the Saturday final more than I thought I would. I prefer the Tuesday/Wednesday fixtures though. Gives us something to look forward to.

I guess it works well for non-European fans.

I for one welcome if the semis were in the weekends, I don't know why top leagues would find it a problem since they can always reschedule games like they do for league cup games that overlap with league games. I'm surprised that it hasn't happened sooner....

Yeah. I'm never able to watch the CL live because of being at work :( its usually on TV at 1-3pm :( would love Saturdays.

Frankly don't understand the Europeans dogma of CL=weekdays and Leaguea=Weekends. They could just switch that week and have CL on Saturday and League on weekdays and everyone *should* be happier as everyone would be able to watch live (except the odd person working on weekends).

No surprises there. The leagues look out for their own interest.

A decision needs to be made on the way forward: are they going to focus on the TV audience (much bigger) or the stadium audience (much better for atmosphere)? I don't live in Germany so I watch all the games from home. In that regard, having a league game during the week is not too bad, it's actually something to look forward to. But there will definitely be less people travelling to go to games.

Yeah, but by that logic, CL games would be harder to travel to anyway. Isn't it worth sacrificing a few local game atmospheres for CL game atmospheres? Both involve the club and it's fans anyway.

When I watch tennis or NBA late at night, I never complain about time difference, so I'm absolutely against this bullshit.

Don't get me wrong I think the group stages should stay where they are but from a marketing point of view it makes no sense what so ever to have the knockout rounds of the most prestigious club competition on weekdays....

Maybe, but not necessarily. CL games often involve cross-country travel. It's probable that many won't travel on the day of the match, especially if they're using air travel. So they might still need time off work.

Like I said, I'm pretty indifferent to it though.

I still prefer the current format...
