Uefa told to start European football restructure plan 'from scratch'

The European Leagues' organisation - which represents 35 leagues on the continent - said reforms "benefit just a few rich and dominant clubs".

Uefa and the European Club Association (ECA) have plans for a European football pyramid with promotion and relegation to the Champions League.

But on Thursday, European Leagues said the proposals "damages the leagues".

The European Leagues' board - which includes the outgoing bosses of the English Football League and Premier League, Shaun Harvey and Richard Scudamore respectively - met in Warsaw to discuss proposals laid out by European football's governing body.

The 13-man board said it "retained the strong opinion that the presented proposal for reforming the European club competitions benefits just a few rich and dominant clubs but damages the leagues and the great majority of clubs playing in the domestic competitions.


Breakaway league imminent? Will they be missed?
