UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin says the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League could be abandoned if Coronavirus restrictions remain in place into September.
The Champions League and the Europa League are currently suspended indefinitely.
‘’We can’t play it out in September or October,’’ Ceferin told ZDF SportStudio.
Ceferin added that playing games behind closed doors would be preferred to abandoning games.
‘’We are waiting for the development of this terrible situation in the world, and mainly in Europe.
‘’It is still better to play games behind closed doors and have it on TV, which is what the people need and want because it brings positive energy to their homes, than not playing at all.
‘’That’s what the people want, that brings positive energy, and it will be July or August.’’
The finals of UEFA Champions League, The UEFA Europa League and Women’s Champions League, which were initially scheduled for May, were postponed until further notice.
