New U-19's competition for next year. Will be done Champions League style, with groups of four playing home and aways and then a knockout stage will occur later in the season.

The teams on their website are Marseille, Barcelona, Sporting Lisbon, Liverpool, Inter Milan, Molde, Rosenborg, PSV, Celtic, Fenerbahce, Basel, Werder Bremen, Manchester City, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur. In case I'm missing something there's room for one more to reach their goal of 16 participants.

I hope this competition is successful and it encourages more teams to offer up youth teams to a point where it can be just like a Champions League competition. In fact UEFA should be using CL revenues in order to run one rather than have it done this way. This should have been done a while ago.
