UEFA Looking To Shake Up Club World Cup Format

UEFA Looking To Shake Up Club World Cup Format

UEFA and the European Clubs Association (ECA) are reportedly looking to change the current version of the Club World Cup in the near future.

The current Club World Cup format is contested between the sides who won their respective continental Championships, with winners from the Copa Libertadores, Champions League always present.

But with all this talk of a proposed Super League happening, the Club World Cup could be set to undergo huge changes.

A new revised version of the tournament is said to be in the works which would see 16 teams, potentially rising 24 at some point down the line, involved in the competition.

The tournament would happen every two years, with the first edition of the new format coming into play in 2019. The ECA want at least eight clubs to take part, which would include the Champions League winners for the last two seasons. Others club would qualify based on a ranking system.

UEFA Planning Summer 'Champions League' To Compete With FIFA World Club Cup

The new adaptation of the Club World Cup would take over from the yearly tournament that has been won by the Champions League winners for the last three seasons - the planned changes would certainly bring a sense of unpredictability to proceedings.

The only real issue is that the bi-yearly Copa America tournament would be affected because of clashes with scheduling and CONMEBOL, the South America federation may have to switch up their format.

However, the tournament would likely bring in extra revenue through TV deals without majorly disrupting the top leagues in Europe or the Champions League.

Would you be in favour of the proposed plans? Let us know in the comments.
