UEFA have Announced Topps have the rights for the UEFA Champions League and for the first time the UEFA Europa League rights from the 2015/2016 season for 3 years. My topps Facebook page has said to keep looking back for more news soon.
Here is the full article:

UEFA is delighted to announce that Topps are joining the licensing programme for the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for a three-year period starting from the 2015/16 season. Topps are market leaders worldwide and will be bringing their expertise to a range of products including stickers, trading cards and digital collections.

Topps have over 75 years of heritage and experience working with leading brands in sports and entertainment, including the invention of the modern-day sports trading card, which began with the release of a first set of baseball cards in 1951. Current releases include best-selling sticker collections; Topps Match Attax, the world's biggest selling sports trading card game; and Topps Kick, a global real-time digital collectable that has become one of the top-grossing licensed sports apps.
Guy-Laurent Epstein, marketing director of UEFA Events SA, described the partnership as "a new and exciting venture", adding: "We are delighted to welcome Topps to the official licensing programme of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League for the 201518 cycle.
"The sticker and trading card games are a great way for UEFA to connect and engage with young fans around the world. Topps offer exciting and innovative digital solutions to complement the traditional physical products, and will make a strong contribution to both the UEFA Champions League and for the first time UEFA Europa League brands through such licensed products."
Topps vice-president Chris Rodman said: "We are thrilled to be working with UEFA and the best of European club football. Topps are the market leaders within the collectables category, with the best-known brands for both physical and digital collections. Together with UEFA's flagship club competitions, we are looking forward to some ground-breaking new products that will excite fans young and old around the world."

I am very excited about the prospects of another Match Attax collection and a Champions League one which could be even better!! I hope they don't go silly releasing Limited Editions left right and centre, but this is very exciting news!!
The only problem is that I'm not going to have a very healthy bank balance come the end of next season with all these Match Attax collections, that is if there are Match Attax Champions League Cards!

What does everyone else think, a good move or a bad one by topps?

Cheers
Toby

Great for Topps but i'll wait and see to be honest before I judge it. Topps can as we've seen with the Premier Gold and Premier Club cards step it up a notch when they want to. I'm hoping its something inbetween the Match Attax and Premier Gold/Club cards.

Liked the Panini cards last few years, design probably overall better than Match Attax. However like Phil said, they can step it up a notch, it will be interesting to see which countries the cards are sold.

this is bad news some of the sets topps have turned over in the last few years have been shocking
can you imagine next years set of champions league cards they will have some of the teams from the qualifying rounds in it as they rush the sets out
and say good bye to the stickers album as they wont do one like panini have done
this is a sad day for football collectors
the only good thing is that they wont be 70 or 80 limited edition cards to collect for each set
i hope that panini get the licence for the premier league fingers crossed

Will be interesting to see how they do it - will it be similar to World Cup sets where they cover 32 teams but the "smaller" sides only get 2 or 3 cards? Will they feature English teams in it (as well as in the Premier League set)?

Bad move from Topps. I am very unhappy. I believe that the CL should always belong to Panini and the same for the BPL with Topps.

Let's hope Panini steps up in the game and competes well, or they could be overtaken by Topps.

Same. I really don't want Topps to release a CL TCG.

The statement that Topps and UEFA have released HERE really emphasises the Europa League as well as Champions League.
So I'm guessing we get collections for both from Topps
