UEFA would already be organizing the new Champions League format for the 2024-2025 season. This was reported by the Spanish media ‘Sport’ on its website and also pointed out that the first change would be the expansion of the number of participating teams from 32 to 36.
Then, the criteria to enter the competition would be maintained and would be the first four classified in the League (in the case of Spanish football). According to the aforementioned newspaper, the extra places would come from the local tournament in France and from the league champion of the country with the best UEFA coefficient that does not have a direct place (in this case it would be Turkey) and
Likewise, the two clubs with the best coefficient would have access to the remaining quotas. In total, these teams would be divided into four blocks of nine each: A, B, C and D distributed according to the performance of each cast in Europe in the last five seasons.
Later, these squads would play a kind of league, but they will not play all against all. Each box would face ten matches, five at home and five away. The top eight would then qualify directly for the round of 16.
Likewise, the 16 teams that occupy places from 9th to 24th would play a two-leg tie against each other and the eight winners will advance to the next round. Then the Champions League would be as it would be known before with quarters, semi-finals and a final.
