A third UEFA club competition is set to be introduced from the 2021-22 season, the head of the association representing Europe's biggest clubs said on Tuesday.
European Club Association (ECA) chairman Andrea Agnelli told his members at a meeting in Split that the new event would bring the "overall number of clubs" involved in UEFA club competition to 96.
Under the new format, the Europa League's group stage will be reduced from 48 teams to 32, with the new competition and the Champions League all having the same number.
In his opening address at the ECA's biannual general meeting on Tuesday, Agnelli said: "Pending approval of the UEFA executive committee, the green light has been given to introduce a third competition, bringing the overall number of clubs to 96, as of the 2021/22 season."
