At a time when the Bundesliga has regained rights to play behind closed doors, the Serie A, Premier League and La Liga clubs having also returned to training, the question of a return from the Champions League and the Europa League inevitably arises. UEFA is not giving up and is keen on finishing the two continental competitions which are sources of colossal revenue for UEFA and for European clubs
Asked by the Portuguese media Record, Aleksander Ceferin sent a resounding assurance of the resumption of the two leagues. Listening to him, there is no reason why European competitions should not resume. Better he hopes to finish them at the end of August. “We don’t know what’s going to happen in the world, but the fact is that things are calming down. I think we can finish. The German championship has resumed. In Spain, it will soon be validated, in Portugal even faster. 80% of the European championships have resumed. I do not see why the Champions league and the Europa League should not be played”.
The European clubs that have qualified for the round of 16 therefore already know what to expect, but will no doubt have a final answer to the question on June 17, the date of the meeting of the executive committee of the European governing body.
