There are problems with three cities, we will have to talk about it later, but we hope that they can be played in the 12 planned cities, or at least in nine, 10 or 11 of them.” France has terminated sporting activity until September which puts in doubt how PSG and Lyon will play their remaining Champions League matches this season. “We have an idea but we have to wait for the executive committee of UEFA to confirm the dates,” he told beIN Sports. “I can say that the European season will be finished, if everything is as it is now, in August. “As things look now, I’m sure that we can finish the European season and this means UEFA competition.” Even though several nations have cancelled their domestic divisions, they are still required to finish the European campaign and play qualifiers for the 2020/21 season. “I think the majority of leagues will finish the season. The ones who will not, it’s their decision but they will still have to play qualifiers if they want to participate in UEFA competition,” he said.Advertisementcenter_img UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin is confident that the Champions League and Europa League will be completed by the end of the summer.
