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
