UEFA mulls new Champions League playoffs

Changes are proposed for the semi-final stage.

According to the New York Times, discussions are underway at UEFA regarding the format of the playoffs. Now the most likely offer is the semi-finals from one match.

In addition, many people want to hold the semi-finals and the final in the same city. All three matches fit into one week.

The idea began to spread after the success of last season. Then eight teams played the playoffs from one match against the backdrop of a pandemic. The changes can only take effect from 2024.
