UEFA announces plan to finish Europa League

“Footballers are leading some of today’s most important international debates. We saw Marcus Rashford change policy to stop children from suffering from hunger. Football really can be an important vehicle for good,” the Slovenian said in a press conference held in Nyon, Switzerland.

UEFA released a statement today, detailing how it intends to complete the 2019/20 Europa League season.


“Quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final will be played as a final eight straight knock-out tournament in Cologne, Duisburg, Düsseldorf and Gelsenkirchen between 10 and 21 August.

“The Round of 16 matches will be played on 05/06 August with kick-off times of 18.55 CET and 21.00 CET. A decision will be made in due course on whether the Round of 16 matches for which the first leg has already been played will be staged at the home team’s venue or in Germany.

“The matches FC Internazionale Milano v Getafe CF and Sevilla FC v AS Roma, whose first leg was also postponed, will be played as a single leg at a venue to be confirmed.

“All subsequent matches in the competition will be played as a final eight tournament, with quarter-finals on 10/11 August, semi-finals on 16/17 August and the final in Cologne on 21 August, all kicking-off at 21:00 CET.
