UEFA is considering different options to finish this years Champions League competition.


Nothing has been decided yet, but there has been rumors about a final tournament in the Champions League.

The decision will probably not be made until the UEFA Executive Committee meeting scheduled for June 17. According to "Bild am Sonntag", September 11th is a more likely date for the Bundesliga to kick off again.

If the Bundesliga starts later, there could be a better chance to see spectators at the games. Maybe not from the start but during the season.

Unless, of course, a second wave of the pandemic will emerge.
