New procedure for Champions League entries from 2018

Postby FCBayernNews » Fri Aug 26, 2016 3:35 pm

The formats for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21 have been confirmed, with no changes to the competitions system but a new procedure for entries: the top four teams from the four highest-ranked associations will automatically enter the UEFA Champions League group stage.

“I welcome UEFA's decision, it reflects a serious and fair solution for European club football. I am particularly pleased with the fact that the European football community remains united moving forward,” commented FCB chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who is also chairman of the European Club Association (ECA).

UEFA’s official statement said: Following an extensive consultative process involving all European football stakeholders, UEFA proposed amendments based on recommendations of the UEFA Club Competitions Committee and the European Club Association Board, which have been approved by the UEFA Executive Committee.

Changes

What doesn’t change

A subsidiary company will be created that will play a strategic role in determining the future and the management of club competitions: UEFA Club Competitions SA, where half of the managing directors will be appointed by UEFA and the other half by the ECA.
