These proposals would be within the renewal that the competition will undergo from 2024, when the group stage will be replaced by a league format.
Nevertheless, Ceferin rejected this proposal during a press conference held on Wednesday.
With all due respect to the media, it’s impossible to imagine what kind of news can come out.” We never discuss this.
And the Slovenian leader added:
Suddenly I read in certain media that this would happen, although it was never mentioned. Go and ask UEFA directly. I would be aware if there was any discussion about playing Champions League games outside of Europe, and I don’t know anything about it.
