Uefa delay decision on proposed Champions League format changes until April

A decision on the future of the Champions League has been delayed until next month, UEFA has announced.

It had been expected that UEFA’s executive committee would approve an increase of 100 matches on Wednesday in a new-look format to come into effect from 2024.

However, UEFA said on Tuesday that the decision had been pushed back to the next ExCo meeting on April 19 “in order to finalise ongoing discussions”.

It has been reported that the delay has been caused by a disagreement over control of commercial rights for the new-look competition between UEFA and the European Club Association.

The changes proposed by UEFA in its ‘Horizon 2024’ package amounted to the biggest shift in the competition’s structure for decades.
