Fans Across Europe Slam Plan To Expand Champions League Format

By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Fans across Europe have signed a scathing open letter to the chairman of the powerful European Club Association, Andrea Agnelli, vehemently objecting to plans to expand the Champions League.

Supporters’ groups have timed their missive to coincide with an ECA board meeting today, at which clubs will decide whether to agree to UEFA’s proposals for expansion of the lucrative competition.

Fans from 14 of the 28 clubs represented on the ECA board have joined the protest, which accuses Europe’s leading teams of ‘profiteering’, ‘insatiable greed’ and attempting to ‘bleed us dry’.

They include supporters’ groups from Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Ajax and Bayern Munich, Anderlecht, Atletico Madrid, Benfica, Borussia Dortmund, FC Copenhagen, Fenerbache, Young Boys and Lyon
