UEFA have made a key change to their European competitions for the second half of the 2018-19 season.
And this change will prove to be a massive boost for all the clubs involved in the two leagues – this season as well as in the future.
UEFA have chosen to allow players for two different clubs in the same European competition during the 2018/19 season.
This means players who switch clubs during the January transfer window will no longer be disallowed to play in the same European competition.
And this move will come as a huge boost for all the clubs who are planning to bring in new players this month.
Clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea are all planning to bring in new players this transfer window meaning those new players will be able to play in the same competition for two different clubs.
Apart from this, there are also some other changes that UEFA had made earlier for the 2018/19 season.
Here are the other changes that the governing body of football in Europe have made for the 2018/19 season(as reported by the Mirror):
1.Fourth substitute permitted in knock-out stages in extra-time
2. 23 players, rather than usual 18, will be permitted for the match sheet in the UEFA Champions League final, UEFA Europa League final and UEFA Super Cup
3. New kick-off times in Champions League: 20:00 GMT – with two games every Tuesday and Wednesday starting at 17:55 GMT.
4. Teams who have won the UEFA Europa League (or UEFA Cup) three consecutive times or at least five times will be permitted to wear a special multiple-winner badge on the shirt sleeve. Sevilla are the only side eligible for next season.
