European Club Association (ECA) chairman Andrea Agnelli has said that UEFA are clearing the way for the return of a third club competition, two decades after the disappearance of the Cup Winners’ Cup.

Agnelli, who is also on UEFA’s club competitions committee as well as being chairman of Juventus, said at the ECA’s General Assembly in Split, Croatia, on Tuesday, that “the ‘green light’ has been given to introduce a third competition...as of the 2021/22 season”.

The move would have to be validated at a future meeting of UEFA’s Executive Committee, with the ECA later saying they expected a decision to be reached “before the end of the year”.
