Manchester City is one of the founders of the Super League, which was originally a UEFA Champions League game. However, under tremendous pressure from the British public, Manchester City and five other British clubs withdrew from the Premier League and returned to UEFA competition.
Although the Premier League failed within three days, UEFA announced this week its plans for the UEFA Champions League in 2024. According to the plan, UEFA will provide assistance to the European superstars, because due to the coefficient, the club will be able to enter the UEFA Champions League, not only through the national league. UEFA is also happy for the Giants, because there will be more clubs and more games in the game, which will bring higher revenue.
City superstar Ilkay Gundogan is dissatisfied with the reform of the UEFA Champions League.
“Can we talk about the new UEFA Champions League format? More and more games… no one will consider our players? The new UEFA Champions League format is less evil than the Chinese Super League. The current UEFA Champions League The outstanding performance of the league format is the reason why the game is most popular with players and fans,” said the German national team player.
UEFA has announced the start of the 2024/2025 season. He played 36 games in the UEFA Champions League instead of the previous 32 teams. No longer form a team as before, but all clubs will play in the same league, and each team will play 10 games against 10 different opponents, 5 of which are home and 5 away. The eight best clubs will enter the 16th round, and the 9th to 24th clubs will compete for the remaining 8 seats in the 16th round in two games.
Of these 36 clubs, 32 will directly enter the Champions League based on their position in the domestic Champions League, and the remaining 4 seats will be filled subsequently. The team ranked third in the national championship will get a place, ranked fifth in the European Union rankings, currently France, and will continue for some time. One more seat will be opened through the qualifying qualifiers, and the remaining two seats will be awarded to the club that has not qualified for the Champions League in the past five seasons but has the highest odds in the Europa League or Conference League.
Due to the establishment of the Super League and the chaos caused by the club, the new UEFA Champions League may begin earlier. “Sports” reported that UEFA is now seriously considering switching to a new game, which will bring more games and more money to the club.
