Champions League: Premier League reacts as UEFA makes changes that’ll affect Liverpool, Man City, others

The English Premier League, EPL, on Wednesday, strongly opposed the Union of European Football Associations, UEFA’s proposed Champions League reform that will affect top teams like, Liverpool, Manchester City and others in the English top-flight League.

The Premier League, in a statement issued on their official website, was against UEFA’s proposed Champions League reform that would take place in 2024.
The statement read: “The Premier League and our clubs today unanimously reaffirmed our strong opposition to the proposed reform of UEFA club competitions from 2024, which would alter the structure, calendar and competitiveness of league football.
“We believe the proposals, particularly the suggested format and qualification criteria, would be detrimental to domestic leagues across the continent.
“There was unanimous agreement that the domestic game should continue to be the priority for professional clubs, and any changes to the football calendar must respect the requirements of domestic competitions.
“Critically, qualification for the Champions League and Europa League must continue to depend on current domestic performance.
“The clubs have asked the Premier League to now work with UEFA, fans and other stakeholders across Europe, to identify constructive proposals which improve European club competitions without harming domestic football.
“Premier League clubs will represent these views at the European Club Association meeting in Malta on Thursday and Friday (6 and 7 June).”
