    Florentino: "I believe that the future is open to everything; to a true European competition, and that's where we're going to be." #UCL

    Florentino on the UCL format being changed: "It's very difficult at present, but it's a possibility in the future I'm sure."

    Florentino: "We have asked that UEFA change the format of the UCL because I believe that the current version is rather worn out."

    Telegraph: UEFA to decide on major Champions League revamp in December. #UCL

    Telegraph: Amendments on the table range from tweaks to UCL’s entry criteria to the introduction of a fully-fledged European Super League.

    Telegraph: More likely is an overhaul of a group stage many believe has become stale and is holding back UEFA’s ability to generate revenue

    Telegraph: Specific options include more guaranteed entries for the strongest leagues, protected places for the biggest clubs. #UCL

    Telegraph: #UCL possible format change could include playing matches on Saturdays rather than midweek to appeal to Asian & American viewers.

    The Principality Stadium will have to change its name for the Champions League final next year

    Uefa have told the FA of Wales that the 74,000-seater ground cannot have a commercial title when it hosts the Champions League final next year



    Wales' iconic home of Welsh rugby is to go back in time and be renamed the ‘National Stadium of Wales’ for the Uefa Champions League final.
    The move mirrors the National Stadium title the old Arms Park used to have before it was rebuilt as the Millennium Stadium in 1999.
    Earlier this year, the 17-year-old Millennium was renamed Principality Stadium in a multi-million pound sponsorship deal struck by the Welsh Rugby Union.
    But Uefa have told the FA of Wales that the 74,000-seater ground cannot have a commercial title when it hosts the Champions League final next year.


    Uefa regulations on the matter for their showpiece match are quite specific and they spelt out the ground rules when the FAW and WRU linked up together to bring world football's biggest club match to Cardiff.
    It will mean the massive Principality Stadium sign on the front of the ground will be covered in the week building up to the game.




    More than a billion people are expected to tune in from every corner of the globe to watch the Champions League final, which takes place on June 3, 2017.
    The FAW announced what the ground will be known as in a press release issued to celebrate the official one year countdown to the big match.
    They say: "For commercial reasons, the stadium will be officially referred to as the ‘National Stadium of Wales’ for the staging of UCL Final 2017.
    "The name ‘National Stadium’ dates back to the 53,000 capacity National Stadium, Cardiff Arms Park which hosted Welsh rugby internationals and other events through to 1999, when the iconic Millennium Stadium opened its doors to host the Rugby World Cup."




    Wales' football team also played at the old Arms Park, before following the rugby side into the Millennium. More recently, they have made Cardiff City Stadium their home.
    FAW chief executive Jonathan Ford, who has just returned from the Real Madrid versus Atletico Madrid final in Milan, said: "The 2016 final delivered an estimated economic impact of £45m to the city of Milan.
    "The atmosphere across Milan was incredible and one we eagerly look forward to replicating in Cardiff next year.
    “The 2017 UEFA Champions League Final will be the biggest sporting event to have been staged in Wales and we are determined to deliver the best experience.”
