The Champions League is changing, with 36 instead of 32 teams

The rules of UEFA Champions League are changing. Instead of 32 teams, 36 teams will fight in the group stage. Each team will play a total of 6 home and away matches in this new format. This new rule is going to be effective from 2024.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s Manchester United are unable to take part in the UEFA Champions League as they are not in the top four of the points table, much to the disappointment of fans and supporters. However, even if they are not in the top four in 2024, the chances of big clubs to play in the Champions League will increase. The top two teams may be invited to the Champions League from clubs that have traditionally been successful and large, but have now lost form and failed to qualify for the Champions League. In addition, a total of 36 teams will take part in the Champions League instead of 32 teams. The matches will be held in single league format instead of group stage.

In the new format of European club football, each team will play 8 matches in the league, with 9 clubs in each group. There will be 4 home and 4 away matches. The top 6 teams will qualify for the knockout stage. In addition, the teams in the ninth to 24th place will take a place in the last 16 after playing a two-leg play-off match.
