This seasons’ UEFA Champions League’s fate is expected to be decided on Wednesday with the threat of cancellation looming if an agreement cannot be reached.
The competition was cancelled midway due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and with all the Europe’s top leagues currently suspended, the continental body has been forced to call for a video meeting on Wednesday to come up with the best way to tackle the remaining games.
In a statement on their website, UEFA said: “UEFA has invited the General Secretaries of its 55 members associations to a videoconference on Wednesday 1 April at midday to share an update on the progress made by the two working groups that were created two weeks ago and to discuss options identified with regards to the potential rescheduling of matches.
"The meeting will look at developments across all UEFA national team and club competitions, as well as discussing progress at FIFA and European level on matters such as player contracts and the transfer system.”
This latest update comes only days after UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin admitted the season could be cancelled if matches are not able to be safely rescheduled.
