COVID-19: Leagues to kick-start in July as Champions and Europa League resumes in August

- Advertisement -

The station ‘SER announced through their programme ‘Que T’hi Jugues’ that UEFA and the ECA (European Club Association) have agreed for leagues to kick-start in July while the Champions and Europa League will resume in August.

SER noted that a change of format is not being ruled out. There will be 21 days’ holiday in September 2020.
UEFA and the ECA have come to a first understanding which the station SER has had access to. 

The conclusion is: leagues will be played, or at least resumed, in July, while the Champions and Europa League will continue in August.

The reason is that the coronavirus crisis is expected to have passed by then and football will return, albeit with certain modifications: which ones? Played behind closed doors or even changing the European competition format.

In this line, the two European bodies aren’t ruling out, there being a radical overhaul of how the Champions League and Europa League will end.

 On the table, there are these 2 ideas: having a one-off match and playing it at a neutral venue.

 Everything to finish as soon as possible. And what do UEFA and the ECA opine on how the rest of the leagues will be played? 

They also have in mind them being behind closed doors. 

All that is left is for there to be a meeting with the clubs and the bosses of each domestic competition to clean up the consensus.
