According to Spanish publication Marca, UEFA are proposing the 27th of June as the new date for the Champions League final. The final was originally due to be played on the Saturday 30th May. However, following the suspensions of football leagues across Europe, the schedule has been revised.

The UEFA had earlier announced their decision to postpone EURO 2020 by a year in an effort to give the domestic leagues more time to complete their season. The governing body hope to fit their domestic European competition in the mix as well.

There is a chance that the final could be played behind closed doors.

There were reports earlier that the UEFA was looking to hold a mini-tournament at a neutral venue to shorten both the Champions League and the Europa League to complete the contest in as little time as possible.

The situation right now however, is highly unpredictable to set anything in stone. Only time will tell if football will resume at all for the remainder of the season.
