    American promoters are determined to bring ‘Old Big Ears’ across the pond and the powers that be seem keen on expanding the market.

    The biggest match in European club competition has never left the continent and it would be a major challenge to make that happen.

    However, the financial advantages are massive as such a move would multiply the sale of sponsorship and TV rights.

    UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin floated the prospect of the Champions League final being taken out of Europe shortly after his election in 2016.

    Ceferin said six years ago: “I think it might be an idea in the future but we have to speak about it.

    “To go from Portugal to Azerbaijan, for example, is almost the same as if you go to New York. For the fans it’s no problem.”

    This comes after suggestions last year that the final could be moved to New York by 2024.

    The US are making major strides in the evolution of footballs with 22 out of 28 MLS clubs already having soccer-specific stadiums, instead of reusing grounds from other sports.

    The American association also successfully organised the Champions Cup, which saw the MLS champions going up against the Mexican titleholders.

    The game took place at Yankee Stadium in New York with 15,000 fans in attendance.

    And the 2026 World Cup is going to take place in the US, in collaboration with Mexico and Canada.
