European leagues make Champions League fixture protest

Written by
Champions League trophy

The body representing Europe’s 25 top leagues has ended an agreement with Uefa to not schedule fixtures on the same day as Champions League games.

The move by the European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL) is in protest at reforms to the Champions League that give more power to major clubs.

The changes to entry criteria and prize-money splits for three seasons from 2018 were announced in August.

The EPFL were angry that they were left out of talks about the alterations.

The changes meant Europe’s top four domestic leagues – Spain, Germany, England and Italy – would be guaranteed four places each in the group stages.

The EFPL says only Serie A opposed a decision on Friday to end cooperation.
