The new proposed European Super League could have significant repercussions for the League Cup, according to the latest reports.

European football leaders have been in discussions about restructuring the Champions League competition.



However, UEFA's priority has been to secure more Champions League games between the leading clubs, and those ideas would arguably dilute the quality.



That, as a result, could have a huge effect on the competition for those outside of Europe, with the League Cup suddenly becoming a very realistic route into the Europa League.

Finding space in the football calendar could prove to be a major obstacle for any European widespread changes, which puts the League Cup in jeopardy, according to The Times.

A variety of new formats have been suggested to accommodate extra Champions League games, such as having eight groups of six teams instead of four in the group stage would achieve that with four extra match dates, as would a French proposal of six groups of six teams.

Another alternative is UEFA could adjust their Champions League calendar to find two of the four extra dates needed, by playing the last-16 games over two weeks instead of four, but the other two fixtures would need to be fitted in elsewhere in the season.
