Final of the Champions League in the United States? Is this cool or is it not allowed?
Champions League is the favorite and important competition in the life of almost all footballers. Every year the Champions League final is held in different stadiums in different corners of Europe, but soon a novelty may be introduced that will not be to everyone’s liking.
Dozens of rich people from the US have poured billions of dollars into European soccer in recent years, but it’s only one big move to turn it around. In 2026, interest in regular soccer will increase in North America, as the World Cup is taking place in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and after that, it will be important for local authorities and entrepreneurs to integrate the relatively new hobby of local residents.
UEFA and FIFA are negotiating a possible venue for the Champions League final in the United States. It should be noted that the discussion about this is not new: a few years ago, UEFA representatives did not hide their thoughts about the attractiveness of the American market, and in 2019, at the opening of the MetLife Stadium, this was directly stated. The Champions League final could be hosted as early as 2024. As of the appointed date, it was not possible to agree, because the next three finals will be held in Istanbul, London and Munich, so the idea will not materialize before 2026.
From the point of view of expanding the football audience, profiting from various commercial sources and attracting sponsors for the future is a good idea, but there are many “buts”. At the very least, the departure from tradition is terrifying, as watching a final between European teams on the other side of the ocean would be the strangest thing that has ever happened in history. In addition, it is a certain disrespect to the fans of Europe, who, to put it mildly, will be a little uncomfortable waking up at night or early to watch the long-awaited game.
It is clear that whoever pays more decides the terms, but something is weakly represented by the conditional NBA Finals in Romania or the NHL Finals in Albania. There have been a few basketball league matches held in Europe in history, but none can compare to the Champions League final. If the United States is already looking for such deals, then in the next few years we may see the possibility of hosting the European Championship finals on another continent. As long as he can surprise after the Champions League in America?
When Real Madrid’s president promoted the Super League, UEFA called it greed and a desire to break established traditions, and when Aleksandar Ceferin reached the finals of America’s premier club competition, it was the norm. Double standards?
