UEFA Relaxes Multi-Club Ownership Rules, AC Milan and Aston Villa Cleared to Compete in Europe

UEFA has relaxed its rules on multi-club ownership, allowing AC Milan and Aston Villa to compete in European competitions next season. The two clubs were previously under investigation by UEFA for potential breaches of the rules, which prohibit any club from holding or dealing in securities or shares of another club participating in UEFA competitions.

However, UEFA has now cleared the two clubs after they made significant changes to their ownership and governance structures. AC Milan has sold its stake in RedBird Capital Partners, while Aston Villa’s owners have reduced their stake in Vitoria Sport Clube.

The relaxation of the multi-club ownership rules is a significant development for European football. It could pave the way for other clubs to acquire stakes in other clubs, and could lead to the creation of more multi-club ownership networks.”We are pleased that UEFA has taken this step to relax the multi-club ownership rules,” said a spokesperson for AC Milan. “This will allow us to continue to compete at the highest level of European football.

“The relaxation of the multi-club ownership rules is a significant development for European football. It could lead to the creation of more multi-club ownership networks, which could have a major impact on the competitive landscape of the sport.
