​August finish for Uefa competitions under consideration

Uefa is considering the option of finishing the Champions League and Europa League club competitions in August once domestic leagues are completed, the PA news agency understands, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.

Soccer across the continent has been ground to a halt by the coronavirus pandemic and the governing body is meeting 23rd April to discuss how the 2019/20 season can be concluded.

Its plans for the top two European competitions will depend on how soon domestic leagues across the continent can resume.

If they are up and running some time in the next couple of months, then Uefa could decide to play them alongside the league action as they do in normal circumstances.

But if it is not until July or August that the action is under way then Uefa would be more likely to play the remainder of the two competitions in a condensed timeframe, culminating at the end of the August.
