UEFA has postponed the finals of its European club competitions, but has not yet announced rearranged dates.

The latter stages of the UEFA Champions League and Women’s Champions League, as well as the UEFA Europa League which were all scheduled for May 2020 have been postponed, while the federation is also considering playing the games in the latter stages of the competitions over one leg instead of two.

UEFA says that a working group, which was established after a conference call between key stakeholders in European football and chaired by UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin, will make recommendations on how to proceed and has already started to examine the calendar. 

Meanwhile, in the absence of competition, UEFA has also launched a programme of free archive footage of classic matches in a bid to keep fans entertained.

Classic matches will be played on UEFA.tv on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings in place of live Champions League games, while historic Europa League games will be screened on Thursdays.

UEFA has also made its UEFA.tv app available on Apple TV, Android TV and Amazon Fire TV to complement existing access on its smartphone apps and web browser.
