  • Champions League quarter-finals: August 12-15
  • Champions League semi-finals: August 18-19
  • Champions League final: August 23

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said they will decide by mid-July whether fans could be present at the respective Champions League and Europa League tournaments.

He said: “If I would answer today, we don’t think we could have spectators at the Champions League or Europa League finals, but things are changing rapidly.

“We will assess the situation at the beginning of July and we will see what the situation will be. It would be incompetent from us if we were to decide in advance about the situation.”
