UEFA, European Football’s governing body, has reported that the current COVID-19 crisis has forced the ‘postponement indefinitely’ of all club finals.
Last night, UEFA released a brief statement announcing its decision to postpone its May Finals roster for both men’s and women’s football competitions in the Champions League and Europa League.
In its report, UEFA Governance reported that’ no decision has been made to reschedule the matches,’ which would have seen its Champions League marquee finale taking place on May 30 at Istanbul Turkey’s Ataturk Olympic Stadium.
UEFA reports that it has set up a’ working group’ chaired by President Aleksander Čeferin, evaluating all possible ways to complete the season when all European football leagues are affected by developments in COVID-19.
