  • It will be 24/25 Champions No club coefficient for 36 teams, eight safe matches and two additional places

Although there is still time for 2024, yesterday the details of the revolution to be introduced by the Champions League from that season (24/25) were announced. A revolution, as a reaction to the famous Super League, where there would be room for 36 teams (instead of 32 as has been the case so far) that would face each other in the same league. The group stage draws are over. From there 16 names will come which will reach the round of 16. Top eight straight, and remaining between ninth and 24th place after a two-legged tie. In this unique 36-team league, everyone will play eight doubles, not 10 as appeared in the proposal initially presented.

So, if it’s a 36-team league, but each team only plays eight games, how do you decide who plays? The answer comes from Switzerland, especially chess. And to be more precise about a boy is said Julius Muller, which gave rise to his idea, known as the Swiss system, in the 19th century. As it is. This format was officially released in 1895 during the Zurich tournament. 129 years later, already in the 21st century, it will be football, especially the Champions League, that will use its creation. Julius never would have imagined that his invention, which applied to other sporting disciplines, would eventually take off so much and be a key to the redesign of the Champions League.

But what is the mechanism of this Swiss system? In the case of chess, in championships with multiple opponents, try to match each one to an opponent of the same level. The play of white and black should also be balanced, so that no one has more advantage over the other. in champions 24/25 What touches us will not be much different in outlook. The goal, basically, is for everyone to play against everyone else. And those who are adding victories, those who present high standards, face rivals with performances or similar moments. There will be an initial distribution of matches with which the competition will begin and from there, it will be wins, draws and losses that will proceed over the course of those eight days, of which everyone is assured. There were two more than now and two less than what was intended to be installed.

Obviously, the win would be worth one point and the tie, half. So, if the most powerful teams face each other, by inertia, they will measure themselves a step (or two) down from those. In short, everything will lead to the desired that is against all. Although, literally, this will not happen. Because there will be some guidelines which will be followed. There will be no classic or Madrid derby or any duel between teams from the same country until the competition progresses. It will remain the same as before. That is to say, beyond the score, the conditioning factors in the confrontations will remain.

League after 12 eliminated

The best eight will go straight to the round of 16, nothing new there. Yes, it will happen that the teams placed between 9th and 24th will face off in a round-robin match to see who takes the remaining eight spots. At the end of that league, 12 people will say goodbye: those who finish between 25th and 36th place.

There was controversy about how the four teams would be expanded. More than anything because the initial idea was to apply the club coefficient criterion to two of them. Finally, as requested by the league and fans, they will go to the federations with the best performances of their clubs in the previous season. Would have been winners this year because of the collective performance of their teams England You Netherlands, The remaining two tickets will be for the national champion of the so-called Route of Champions and for the third party of the Federation which is fifth in the ranking.

There are still two years left before this new bet, with which UEFA wants to keep everyone happy and avoid external temptations like the Super League. “We are convinced that the chosen format strikes the right balance,” its president admitted yesterday, Alexander Ceferin, Time will tell.
