Champions League Final Could Be Played In New York In 2024
The UEFA Champions League plans to hold the UEFA Champions League final in New York from 2024, and Europe’s largest club competition will be completely renovated.
UEFA will improve the game within three years and plans to increase the number of teams in the "appropriate" phase from 32 to 36.
The team will use the "Swiss system" instead of groups of eight, each group of four, but another huge change may be the final position
¨According to the "Sun" report, UEFA has begun to propose the idea of bringing representative works of European football to the Big Apple for the first reorganization.
According to the current format, the next few finals have been planned in Istanbul, St. Petersburg, Munich and Wembley, but no decision has been made since then.
This is not the first time that a proposal to take the finals abroad has been proposed, and the United States has also been the venue for discussions about possibilities.
As early as November 2019, it was reported that TEAM Marketing AG, representing UEFA's business interests, had talked with potential partners and media rights holders of the program.
It even claimed that the Metropolitan Stadium, home to the New York Giants and the New York Jets, is their first choice. The Metropolitan Stadium is the home of the New York Giants and the New York Jets and has hosted two wrestling mania contests.
An "American football insider" told the newspaper: "We have seen 100,000 or more people participating in pre-season friendly matches involving major European countries.
"From a business perspective, it is very meaningful for the European Union to explore this."
If the final took place at 3pm local time in New York then it would kick off at 8pm in the UK and 9pm in mainland Europe, which is the usual kick off time for the final.
However it would of course affect fans wanting to travel for the match as it would be further away than many locations on the continent.
