Champions League urge weekend games to halt Super League



Uefa have formulated an anti-European Super League plan that includes playing Champions Leeague games at weekends and internationals midweek.

Uefa has responded to the threat of a breakaway European Super League involving the continent’s wealthiest clubs by proposing Champions League games should be played at weekends with the midweek Tuesday and Wednesday slots currently used for club football to be occupied by international fixtures.

Fifa president Gianni Infantino has already suggested that any players involved in a hypothetical Super League would be banned from playing in the World Cup and other Fifa-organised tournaments including the Libertadores, Copa América and Club World Cup.

Uefa federations rebel against breakaway by "big four"

However, Europe’s biggest leagues (LaLiga, Premier League, Bundesliga and Serie A) have signed an agreement and sent it to Uefa to the effect that they will not cede weekends to European football, with LaLiga chief Javier Tebas among the signatories. Meanwhile, the remainder of the federations that make up Uefa have separately requested that the four automatic places awarded to Spain, England, Germany and Italy be revoked.
