The Champions League officially resumes in August. All matches will be take place in Lisbon, Portugal from August 12th – 23rd.
Any Round of 16 legs that weren’t completed will likely take place at the hosting club’s stadium on August 7th or 8th.
UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin issued the following statement on the restart:
“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 took a bold decision when it decided to postpone Euro 2020. But in doing so, we created the space which has allowed domestic club competitions across the continent to resume, where possible, and play to a conclusion. While the game has suffered huge difficulties as a result of the pandemic, those blows would have landed much harder if we had not shown leadership in those early days.”
The 2019-20 UCL final was originally slated to take place in Istanbul. However under this new arrangement, Istanbul will now host the 2021 final. St. Petersburg, Russia, will be moved as finals host from 2021 to 2022.
