Liga NOS President Pedro Proenca doesn’t like the idea of Champions League matches being played on weekend, saying it would hurt domestic competitions, particularly Liga NOS.
This week, Estadio da Luz hosted a meeting of the European Leagues and many spoke against the idea of Champions League matches on weekend and a possible European Super League, which may or may not include Portuguese teams depending on what you read.
Spain’s La Liga also spoke against these ideas, joining their counterparts from Liga NOS.
“At the moment this question (Weekend Champions League Matches) shouldn’t be considered, as weekends are vital for the development of domestic football. To be giving up the weekends in favor of an international event seems to me to be out of order and would not benefit Portuguese football. We are absolutely against it,” says Proenca.
