UEFA has confirmed the postponement of three major tournament finals: the Champions League Final, the Europa League Final and the Women’s Champions League Final.
No new dates have yet been set for the rescheduled finals.
In a statement released on Monday evening, UEFA said:
“As a result of the COVID-19 crisis in Europe, UEFA has today formally taken the decision to postpone the following matches, originally scheduled for May 2020:
• UEFA Women’s Champions League Final
• UEFA Europa League Final
• UEFA Champions League Final”
No decision has yet been made on rearranged dates.
With European football on hold in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, UEFA have a number of rounds of matches to schedule before even reaching the finals, while domestic leagues will also have to be reassigned space in the sporting calendar.
UEFA have already confirmed that there are likely to be significant changes to qualifying for the 2020/21 European competitions due to the compacted fixture list.
And the European organization are also considering the option of running matches over summer weekends, or potentially one-venue mini-tournaments. No decision on the new-look conclusion to the tournaments has yet been made.
