Au­gust fin­ish for UEFA tip

The Advertiser - - SPORT -

UEFA has a plan to fin­ish the 2019-20 sea­son by Au­gust, in­clud­ing the Cham­pi­ons League and Europa League cam­paigns, the Euro­pean soc­cer gov­ern­ing body’s pres­i­dent Alek­sander Ce­ferin has said.

Most Euro­pean league sea­sons were sus­pended in March be­cause of the COVID-19 pan­demic but a few leagues have an­nounced plans for a restart in com­ing weeks.

The French and Dutch topflight cam­paigns have been can­celled but the Ger­man Bun­desliga restarted on Satur­day and Ce­ferin ex­pects at least 80 per cent of na­tional leagues to fin­ish their sea­sons.
