The European Club Association met to discuss the proposal at Madrid and the results of the discussions are as follows.

UEFA confirmed that the group stages proposal has been shelved and that there will be eight teams playing in the stages instead of the current six. Despite the concerns about fixture congestion, proposal to expand the champions league teams to thirty six will go ahead.

The four additional places will be distributed fairly with two places been given out to the associations with the best collective performance by their clubs in the previous season.
