Football: The UEFA mini-championship has been heavily criticized

Unbelievable, but it was: UEFA is already planning a new club championship. In the summer there will be a mini tournament where four teams play against each other in a knockout system. The tournament will be held in the USA. The reason: Clubs are already traveling around the world in their preparation. One of the participants must also be the winner of the Champions League.

The ulterior motive is that the format of the “fourth championship” should be acceptable to football fans. UEFA is planning to have the four semi-finalists play against each other in the Champions League knockout system as well. This “inaugural tournament”, as UEFA calls it, will take place prior to the CL group stage of the 2024/25 season.
