The postponement of the European Championship to 2021 opens the calendar door to national and continental tournaments. The winner of the Champions League will be decided on June 27
UEFA’s decision to postpone the Euro Cup dispute to 2021 opens a door for the rest of the competitions that are now stopped to be played until the end without problems. By postponing the great tournament this summer, which was to be held between June 12 and July 12, 2020, the schedule is greatly clarified and both local leagues and European competitions can be completed once the alert is raised by the coronavirus. The final of the Champions League, which was to be played on Saturday, May 30, will be played on June 27.
The Spanish League is no longer required to finish on May 24 to give teams time to focus and prepare for the Euro Cup. The duration of the championship can be extended and therefore, all the remaining days can be played without having to choose the champion who is now the leader or other strange solutions. And the same happens with the Champions and the Europa League, where options such as the single-match elimination dispute or a kind of Final Four were already being considered to reduce the number of matches in the search for a winner.
With the Euro Cup postponed until 2021, many of the schedule problems have disappeared, even without the emergency situation extending a month from now. This is the news that Javier Tebas, president of Laliga, was waiting for, to be able to breathe easy and assure fans that the tournament will be completed without major problems. It remains to be seen when the ball will roll again.
