Toulon Owner Wants To Scrap Champions Cup In Favour Of European Super League

Mourad Boudjellal believes a European Super League is the way forward.

Boudjellal believes the current competition format should be replaced by a European League with 20 clubs, six French, six English and the remaining eight coming from the Pro12.

The league would be formed by two groups of ten, playing 18 round robin matches before a knockout stage that begins with a quarter-final meaning the total number of games would be 21 for the finalists.

The Top 14 would be reduced to 12 clubs with relegation and promotion to and from the European Super League.

His plan would also see the four European Super League semi-finalists face the final four from Super Rugby in a Club World Cup format.
