[VIDEO] UEFA may abandon Champions League and Europa League this season

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said the Champions League and Europa League could be abandon this season if home restrictions remain in place until September.

However, Ceferin said UEFA would prefer to play behind closed doors rather than abandoning the season.

“We can’t play it out in September or October,” Ceferin told ZDF Sportstudio.

“If the authorities do not allow us to play, then we cannot play.

“The fact is that we really don’t know much.

“We are waiting for the development of this terrible situation in the world, and mainly in Europe.

“It is still better to play the game behind closed doors and have it on TV, which is what the people need and want because it brings positive energy to their homes, than not playing at all.

“That’s what the people want, that brings positive energy, and it will be July or August.”
