UEFA Champions League could be decided by mini-tournament


European football’s governing body will hold a series of conference calls on Tuesday to decide on issues that have arisen because of the impact coronavirus is having on the sporting calendar.

A number of options will reportedly be presented to ease fixture congestion, all coming with their own consequences for domestic and international football over the rest of this year and 2021.

Mini tournaments are apparently also on the table for discussion in order to decide the Champions League and Europa League this season will when UEFA convene.

Another option is expected to include having just one leg for the Champions League and Europa League quarterfinals and semifinals this season.

Euro 2020 appears likely to be postponed by UEFA’s Executive Committee.

The Tuesday’s conference calls will involve representatives of UEFA’s 55 member associations, together with the boards of the European Club Association and the European Leagues and a representative of FIFPro.
