According to the head of the European Leagues, there is a proposal to have this system implemented in the UEFA competitions.
According to the head of the European Leagues, Lars-Christer Olsson, UEFA is considering a project to implement promotion and relegation in future editions of the UEFA Champions League.
But this plan might seem the Europa League get eliminated, in favor of a Europe-wide competition with teams being promoted and relegated.
“There are ideas about promotion and relegation in the system, it’s a different system from the one we have today,” he told reporters according to Reuters.
“The total picture is there should be more clubs involved, for example … so we have to analyze what effect that is going to have.”
“At the moment we have only ideas and opinions,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin continued saying.
“We will use this process to design our competitions to protect and develop European football.”
“Our aim is to find a solution that reflects the changes in the game, preserves the position of UEFA’s competitions as the most attractive and exciting in the world while providing significant solidarity funding across European football,” he explained.
Javier Tebas, president of the Spanish La Liga, said the plans shown were “very similar to the ones we criticized before”.
“We hope we can change everything that has been presented.”
