    it'll be more fun if clubs who finish top 4 in every top leagues in europe can play in this new competition otherwise this competition will be boring after 1 year.

    Will it though? We play pretty much the same teams every year in the Premier League and the games people care most about are against the same 5 clubs.

    Won’t a european league be boring after a while? We play Juventus one week, PSG the next, then Bayern etc.

    PL is more exciting, more romantic. I want to watch Arsenal vs West Ham, go away to Burnley, play Sp**s in front of 60K North Londoners etc, have Xmas fixtures.

    because the domestic leagues are different and more fun you play different level of teams with this new league you will play the best only and the same big European teams every season also in CL for example it'll give outside chance for other teams to shine like saw with Atalanta Leipzig.

    it won't affect the PL because this league will be played in midweek but i agree it'll be boring after 1 season.

    Portuguese teams. Kiev maybe, one of the Moscow teams.

    Play a game in Dubai, play a game in India, play a game in Japan etc.

    So a European League will become its own sport really? I’m thinking out loud. It changes everything.

    Arsenal won’t remain a North London club really. Only in name.

    As if the game needs to be more exclusionary. Football is a game that should be accessible to as many people, clubs, and cultures as possible. Domestic leagues are way more romantic, and it preserves the special rarity of big european champions league nights and event fixtures.

    I strongly don't want this. Distilling the biggest opportunities down to a few elite clubs to go round a contained competitive european carousel is already a problem, this just sets it in stone. I don't care if it benefits Arsenal financially, its not good for football.

    Moscow will need to have a team, so will Amsterdam, maybe Istanbul too.

    One day Amsterdam will play Arsenal on Mars.

    Then one day you invite Tokyo to have a team, Mumbai to have team, we know Dubai will get a team.

    You create a new sport.

    Sometimes less is more. I'm speaking purely from an entertainment POV but watching PSG vs Barca twice a season probably gets boring before you know it. Big teams don't want to get embarrassed thus you're going to get loads of 0-0 or 1-0 situations. Especially, if they want to win their domestic leagues too.

    Yeah, completely idiotic, which is why it'll happen.

    In brasil they tried to get a second league going due to TV rights and it was a fluke, fans rejected it and there wasn't a lot of money going around.

    This, on the other hand has serious backing. Who would be the governing body?

    Is there a difference between FIFA and UEFA here? Meaning, does UEFA take a cut of the TV and advertising money clubs get?

    Having direct control over finances is big, but surely you don't want your big team placed 18th and relegated such a tournament?

    What would this even mean? You get relegated and get to play normal premier league and champions league football?

    They’re not being included in this. Banks aren’t investing billions on the basis people are going to watch ****ing Kiev or Moscow. Benfica and Porto possibly but doubtful.

    In terms of geography, Moscow and Istanbul are big markets. Both teams will improve too, they’ll be super powers in no time.

    Is this confirmed? How are they going to fit in a minimum of 34 more games in a season?
