There is a proposal to change the CL format starting 2024 that would create a promotion / relegation system between CL / EL / New 3rd tier competition already announced that would do way with the qualification system in the national leagues. Basically the proposal still has 32 teams in the group stages. But with 4 groups of 8 instead of 8 groups of 4. The top 4 of each group qualify for R16 stage. The bottom team of each group would be relegated (4 total). Top 4 teams of EL would be promoted to CL. EL would follow the same format with a 64 team 3rd tier competition below it. Obviously this requires more dates in the calendar. A big impact would be in the domestic leagues where there would be no meaning to battling for 2-4th or 5th-7th (in big leagues). Many teams would have nothing to play for other than position and money that goes with near the end of the season. Obviously domestic FAs will not like/agree with this.
