UEFA will meet with its 55 federations on Tuesday, April 28, to discuss the Champions League and European leagues resuming once countries have the coronavirus pandemic under control, CBS Sports reports.

According to the Gulf News, all 55 member associations took part in a video conference with Uefa officials on Tuesday, April 21, and while no decisions on future planning are expected until Thursday’s Executive Committee meeting, there was no sign of a switch from the policy to aim to finish the current season.

UEFA is considering an option where Champions League play would start back up on August 7-8, assuming domestic leagues are done by then.

Thus the 2020-21 Champions League group stage wouldn't begin until October - a month later than usual.

As it was reported, the sport has been brought to a standstill by the outbreak with the Euro 2020 competition postponed until next year, and both national leagues and continental club competitions on hold.
