European Clubs Set To Discuss Controversial Proposals For Hosting Champions League Games

Holding Champions League games in the United States, China and other countries outside of Europe will be a topic of discussion at the next annual meeting of the European Club Association (ECA), according to reports.

UEFA’s executive committee have been going over the proposals and they will be put forward to the general assembly of the ECA, which is scheduled to take place in Istanbul.

It is believed that Paris Saint-Germain’s president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is one of the biggest proponents of the plans as it would allow the global fanbases to see their teams in action in competitive fixtures.


How this would affect Rangers, it is difficult to know at this time. The Light Blues have a following around the world but their games are unlikely to be the main focus of UEFA’s initiative.

Teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona Bayern Munich and Liverpool could all bring in tens of thousands to international games, but there is likely to be resistance from domestic fans who could lose home matches as a result.
