According to a report from Corriere dello Sport, European football’s governing body UEFA could be set to launch a television channel.

The channel would be entirely dedicated to football on the continent and would be a further source of revenue for clubs. The channel could have a possible viewership of some 2 billion people and revenues for the channel could be as much as €50 billion.

Moreover, the report from the Rome based newspaper reports that in a few years time the away goals rule could be done away with.

Currently away goals scored in the Champions League and Europa League during the knockout stage effectively count for double and UEFA leaders find it unjust and believe that a goal should be worth a goal and nothing more than that regardless of whether it is scored at home or away from home. This change could come in to place from the 2020-21 season.
