Association European Professional Football Leagues (EPFL) this Friday has come to a conclusion to cancel the memorandum on collaboration with UEFA as Sueddeutsche informs.
Let us recall that according to this document European Leagues do not appoint the matches of national Championships on the days of Champions League matches. Due to the decision that was made on Friday the document will be terminated on 15th of March, 2017.
This measure was taken in response to reorganization of the Champions League, initiated by the UEFA. According to this reorganization, starting with the season 2018/2019 the group stage of this competition will surely enter 4 best teams from 4 associations with the highest rating. Besides, it is supposed that the new system of financial disposition will restrict the interests of small football clubs.
