It Looks Like Champions League Games Could Soon Be Coming to Weekends

Champions League group phase and knockout matches could soon be played on weekends, as the hierarchy at UEFA continue to try and eek every possible way of making money out of their premier competition.

The European Cup, and early seasons of the newly re-branded Champions League, used to play its fixtures exclusively on a Wednesday night, but Tuesday night is now a match-day and the final of the competition is now played on a Saturday evening.

What do you think of the rumoured suggestions?
