UEFA are reportedly 'open' to the possibility of staging Champions League matches in the United States sometime in the future.

New York? Washington, DC? Boston? Los Angeles? Miami?

All of these (and many other cities) could be potential venues for Champions League games in the not-too-distant future. For years, American fans have had to settle for watching their favorite Europe-based players and teams taking part in the continent's elite club competition via two ways: either on TV (or via their computers or other devices) or traveling thousands of miles (and at added expense) to watch them in person.

Well, according to reports, UEFA just may be open to the possibility of bringing the hugely popular club competition stateside. Current UEFA boss Aleksander Ceferin in fact stated that "It is possible [for Champions League games to be played in the US....[after all] football is extremely popular in United States these days". 

In addition, Ceferin also expressed his delight that many Americans are truly interested in following European teams by noting "What shocked me actually is that our Euro (2020) finals, Europe national team finals, was [apparently] watched by more people in United States than [the] NBA Finals. What shocked me is that 30 matches of the Euros, every match viewership was [equal to] a Super Bowl viewership."

It will be interesting to see in which year that USA-based fans could have the chance to see a major Champions League match staged on American soil. The next few finals are already booked, with Istanbul hosting this year's event, followed by London in 2024 and Munich in 2025. 

However, the 2026 final has yet to be decided, and given that the USA will be co-hosting the 2026 FIFA World Cup along with Mexico and Canada, is it possible that maybe a lucky American city will have the chance to also host one of the world's most popular footballing tournaments?
