UEFA and European clubs reach agreement: International calendar set for overhaul

The number of international matches played every year is likely to be slashed after European clubs and UEFA reached an agreement on proposals to change the international calendar. The deal, which has still to be agreed with FIFA, would see an average of nine international matches played a year rather than 12. There would be nine double-headers over a two-year period with no one-off friendlies such as those taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday night this week.
