UEFA have decided to move Euro 2020 to 2021 and this has freed up space in June for the Champions League and Europa League to be completed, assuming sufficient progress is made in terms of containing the Coronavirus outbreak.

At a videoconference meeting held on Tuesday, directors decided that the Champions League final should be held on June 27 and the Europa League final on June 24.

The Champions League final should still be held in Istanbul, as originally planned.

The original dates for both finals were May 30 and May 27 for the Champions League final and Europa League final respectively.

Shortly after UEFA suspended Euro 2020, postponing the competition until 2021, CONMEBOL also on Tuesday announced that they would be postponing their Copa America competition.

The South American tournament was set to take place this summer in Argentina and Colombia but CONMEBOL president Alejandro Dominguez revealed the new dates for the competition, announcing that they would be staged from June 11 to July 11 of 2021.

“This is an extraordinary measure for an unexpected situation and responds to the fundamental need to avoid the exponential evolution of the virus,” Dominguez said.
