UEFA plans for Champions League final on August 29

Agency News

European soccer's governing body (UEFA) is working on a proposal to conduct the remaining Champions League matches as a week-long mini-tournament.

According to the new plan, the final of the tournament also planned on August 29 in Istanbul, a BBC report said.

After the COVID-19 pandemic all major European leagues suspended and the Champions League stalled in the middle of its round of 16.

UEFA wants the Europa League final to be held in Gdansk on August 26 and the Champions League final played three days later, the report said.

UEFA is considering two options, one of which is to hold the Champions League quarter-finals and semifinals across two legs in July and August. This would only be possible if domestic leagues restarted in June.
