UEFA is currently studying all its options in order to make adjustments to this season’s Champions League format as the tournament’s progress was interrupted by the pandemic.

It was reported on Friday that the European football governing body was also considering moving the supposed venue of this season’s Champions League final which is to be held in Istanbul.

The Turkish city was due to host the final this Saturday at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium, but the tournament was suspended in mid-March at the last-16 stage in a bid to curtail the widespread of the Coronavirus pandemic.

UEFA still looks forward to concluding the tournament by the end of August, but with major changes to the format likely and with games set to be played behind closed doors.

In an interview with AFP, UEFA spokesman said: “We are considering all the options regarding the calendar and the format of the competition in the working group involving the clubs, leagues and national associations.”

“No decision has been taken yet but there should be an Executive Committee Meeting on June 17,” he added.

According to a UEFA document seen by AFP, the new chosen date for the UEFA Champions League final could be August 29, 2020.

The New York Times reported on Friday that the final would be moved from Turkey but that Istanbul could be chosen to host a future final when it is safe for fans to travel in their numbers across their borders.

Turkey is currently in the process of easing the lockdown measures it had earlier introduced to reduce the spread of the virus, with its football season set to resume on June 12.

The Europa League could also witness changes to its format as the final was scheduled to be played in Gdansk, Poland this week.
