UEFA President: Potential Champions League changes would not harm European football

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has vowed that planned changes to club competitions, including the Champions League, will not harm European football, ONA reports citing GOAL.

Changes, including the introduction of a third European competition, are set to be introduced by UEFA after 2024, with a reformation of the Champions League also being discussed.

"I was encouraged by the positive response to the consultation process and by the solidarity among associations. I was happy to repeat our commitment not to play UEFA club competition matches at weekends, with the exception of the Champions League Final. The consultation process is ongoing and we look forward to receiving the thoughts of other stakeholders directly, rather than having to piece them together from media statements. We will not decide anything without taking everyone's views into account.  We would never accept changes that would harm European football."
