UEFA on Wednesday affirmed that Lisbon will have the last of the current year’s Champions League.
This choice was reached at a gathering of UEFA’s official board of trustees.
The last phases of the 2019/2020 will likewise be played in the Portugal capital rather than Istanbul, which was the underlying decision.
The Champions League will be finished as a smaller than normal rivalry from the quarter-last forward, with Benfica’s Estadio da Luz and Sporting’s Estadio Jose Alvalade to have the games.
The smaller than normal competition will run from August 12-23, with the round-of-16 matches finished August 7-8.
“I am delighted that we are able to resume almost all of our competitions.
“I am confident that we will not have to endure the fans’ absence for long and that they will be allowed into stadiums sooner rather than later,” UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin, told the official website.
