Fix matches The Juventus boss called on the clubs to accept the new format of the Champions League
European football clubs have been encouraged to support plans for reform in the Champions League to meet the interests of the mass of fans around the world. UEFA`s plans are to take effect in 2024 and according to them the Champions League will be in the format of 36 teams that will play nearly 100 matches. They were presented today to the Union of European Clubs (ESA), which has more than 200 members. The agreement could be finalized in two weeks, said Andrea Anelli, president of the Union of Clubs and president of Juventus, in his opening remarks. `I really recommend that we adopt the new system together and allow the Union`s club board to clarify the latest details, ` Anelli said of the ongoing disputes over the new Champions League standings. ESA wants two of the additional four places in the tournament according dropping odds to be set aside for clubs that have not won a place in sports, but have a high rating in European tournaments in recent years. Critics see this as securing the biggest teams at the expense of state champions. If the system worked now, it would bring in appearances for Liverpool and Borussia (Dortmund), who are having bad seasons in their domestic leagues. Anelli argues that the `traditional definition` of fan loyalty needs to change because football is growing rapidly around the world. According to him, 1/3 of the fans of the game support at least two teams and 10 percent like a certain player. As a clear example in this case can be taken Cristiano Ronaldo, who moved to Juve from Real Madrid. Anelli went on to say that the so-called `Generation-Z`, consisting of people between the ages of 16 and 24, `is not in the least interested in football`. `This may be due to the current system, which the modern fan does not like, ` he continued, supporting his thesis by saying that too many matches at the local and international level `are simply not interesting`.
