Uefa is set to launch a third European club competition from the start of the 2021-22 season, the European Club Association president, Andrea Agnelli, has confirmed.

In his opening address at the ECA’s biannual general meeting in Split on Tuesday, the Juventus chairman said: “Pending approval of the Uefa executive committee, the green light has been given to introduce a third competition, bringing the overall number of clubs to 96, as of the 2021/22 season.”

This means the Europa League’s group stage would be reduced from 48 teams to 32, with the new competition and the Champions League all having the same number.

Uefa has made little secret of the fact it has been looking at ways to raise the Europa League’s profile while also giving more clubs a shot at European competition, and therefore its ever-growing financial benefits, too.

This means 12 more european clubs competing in the new league. Raising the quality of EL matches reducing the number from 48 to 32 . More chances for our clubs to get there as most of the today EL playoff teams would be at least already qualified . If this would have been applied before we would’ve seen Skenderbeu and Kukesi at least 2 ore 3 more times in European Leagues group stages. ... ition-2021
