British Government Boosts UEFA Champions League Return Agenda

 

The British Government has handed a boost to the return projects of the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League.

Government has also given the British Grands Prix a go ahead to commence.

It would be recalled that
a plan was initially in place for all Champions League quarter-final and semi-final ties to be played in Istanbul, where the final is due to be held.

The final rounds of the competition, according to reports, are likely to be decided by single matches.

That will constitute a departure from the usual two-legged home-and-away method due to the coronavirus restrictions.

Reports say even though the leagues return projects have been given major boost, fans will likely not be present at any of the remaining matches, regardless of where they are played.

Last season’s winners, Liverpool have been knocked out at the round of 16-stage by Spanish Club, Atletico Madrid.

It is the plan of UEFA that the Champions League final be played in empty stadium.

UEFA’s club competitions are expected to return in August, after the domestic leagues in England, Germany, Spain and Italy are over.

Earlier, France crowned PSG after it abandoned the remainder of the Ligue 1 campaign.

A revised fixture list is believed to have been sent out to the clubs still remaining in the Champions League and Europa League, reports suggest.

Reports say the British government will provide official confirmation of the decision soon, with Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden having stated on Saturday: “The wait is over. Live British sport will shortly be back on in safe and carefully controlled environments.”

He says “It’s up to each individual sport to decide exactly when to resume competition, they know their sports best.

“But football, tennis, horse racing, F1, cricket, golf, rugby, snooker and others are set to return to our screens shortly, with horse racing first out of the gate in the north-east next week.”
