Uefa have confirmed that this season’s Champions League and Europa League finals will not take place at the end of May.

It was revealed last week that European football’s two showpiece games would be moved thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The Champions League final was supposed to take place on May 30 in Istanbul while the Europa League final was down as May 27 in Gdansk.

But now Uefa have confirmed that neither game will be held on its original date, with a statement saying:

“As a result of the COVID-19 crisis in Europe, UEFA has today formally taken the decision to postpone the following matches, originally scheduled for May 2020:

“No decision has yet been made on rearranged dates. The working group, established last week as a result of the conference call among the stakeholders of European football, which was chaired by Uefa president, Aleksander Čeferin, will analyse the options available.

“The group has already begun its examination of the calendar. Announcements will be made in due course.”
