The governing body of football in Europe, UEFA, is considering changing the framework of the world’s most profitable championship.

On its official website, Times Sport verified the story, noting that the organisers are eager to make the move starting in the 2024/25 football season. According to reports from the news agency, the move will take effect from the competition’s semi-final stage, and prominent European teams have already expressed their support for the concept.

The customary two-legged semi-final games will be replaced by a one-leg encounter at a neutral location, and the competition’s final will be held the same week as the semis. If the request is approved, the semi-finals will be played in one leg for the first time since 1995.

However, this will be the second big alteration the organizers have made to the game; the first was the elimination of the away goal rule, which took effect this season (2021/22).
