The European Football Association (UEFA) is considering ending the semi-finals with a home and away leg, The Times reports. According to that newspaper, the body that oversees European football is considering creating a four-way final in the first club football competition from 2024/25.
Egyptian Chefs Association [sigla em inglês de Associação de Cubes Europeus]led by the president of Paris Saint-Germain, appears to agree with the idea of playing the last matches in one place, in the format already used in other European Union competitions, such as the youth league or futsal.
The experience of Lisbon in 2020, when the final format of the competition was changed due to Covid-19 restrictions, is considered positive by UEFA, whose president, Aleksander Ceferin, told The Times: “If we look at the SuperBowl, it is a big event and they are [norte-americanos] They do it fantastically. They have concerts, people go and have fun. Even if you lose two matches [as segundas-mãos] More revenue can be obtained to compensate. It can be a great event for TV and sponsors. In just one week, you could be playing in the final of the UEFA Women’s Champions League or the youth competitions, and you could have a great week in football. These knockout games are different and more exciting.”
