The UEFA teleconference with the 55 national football associations in Europe, the Association of European Clubs, the European leagues and the international players’ union Fifpro provided an opportunity to analyze the current situation and the participants confirmed that the tentative dates were programmed optimistically: June 27 for the final of the Champions League, June 24 for the final of the Europa League. These dates may be changed to allow matches to be played as soon as government health and travel policies permit.
