    They essentially have killed the idea already. No player would be willing to participate in the Super League at the expense of the World Cup.

    No one would watch the World Cup without the stars of the top 20 teams

    Exactly. Also all the national FA's would not allow that to happen, essentially crippling or even dismantling the NT squads.

    Would be a real shame if the Qatar world cup turned into a failure.

    Some leaks of new CL format coming out from various sources, not sure if they're all a bit different or all the same, and whether there's any credibility to it

    CL would have 36 clubs from 2024, teams playing 10 games each in a mini-league format
    new Europa Conference League set to launch below Europa League (basically what used to be Intertoto Cup)
    teams could qualify for CL finishing below top4 in top5 leagues depending on their historical performance in Europe based on UEFA coefficient

    More useless group stage games wouldn't really be something that would please big clubs imo.

    True. We need more big games. Even this season there was very few interesting games in the group stage.

    Well this would probably give more opportunity for big games as teams who perform well in European cups would be more likely to be part of the mini league regardless if they make top4 or not. The counterpoint is that big teams who might play both domestic comps and squeeze 10 games of the group stage in before ~March time might not be overjoyed by fixture density.

    It is the money they are after not more exciting games for them to take part in.

    Isn't that same format they want in their tournament anyway?

    FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, AC Milan, Juventus, Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

    These are the teams apparently. No Bayern or PSG...... yikes.
