According to a report in Football.London, the shareholders of all 20 Premier League clubs are set to meet shortly to discuss the prospect of a ‘European Super League’ being introduced in 2024.
UEFA are said to be working on a proposal to alter the format of the Champions League from 2024 to change it into a longer format that consists of promotion and relegation.
The new format includes a proposal to lock in 24 of the 32 places up for grabs in the competition and potentially having 8 teams per group in order to give sides 14 games each.
The report claims that all the clubs from both Spain and England are strictly against the idea of adding more games to the campaign.
Additionally, besides the European Super League proposal, the 20 clubs are also said to be keen on having a discussion on pushing the transfer window back in order to once again ensure it aligns with the rest of Europe.
The flaws around the implementation of VAR is also said to be on the agenda during the meet.

It is understandable why UEFA wants to increase the number of games in the Champions League as that will mean more money for them. However, there is already too much football being played at the moment and if we are not careful, we are going to see more and more players breaking down and retiring early.
