La Liga clubs face new Financial Fair Play rules

Clubs in La Liga may be subject to a new UEFA Financial Fair Play system. Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Sevilla, and Villarreal are just a few of the clubs who will be affected by the new law.

UEFA has proposed new FFP guidelines to replace the present system, which will take effect if the executive board approves them.

According to the New York Times, the new restrictions will limit clubs to spending only 70% of their revenue. The income might be calculated over a three-year period, which is how the system is currently set up. The new system, which would replace the present contentious system, would be phased in over three years, according to the newspaper.

Clubs would be entitled to spend 90 percent of their money over that three-year period before it drops to 70 percent following the adaptation period. According to reports, UEFA wants to tighten the system such that clubs can only be within a €10 million margin. Clubs might be relegated from the Champions League to the Europa League, the Europa League to the Conference League, and so on if they break the rules, according to reports.

In the new Champions League structure, which kicks off in 2024, UEFA is also rumored to be examining the potential of deducting points from teams. nstead of the present system, which consists of various groups of four, the competition’s group stage will take the form of a large league table.
