The Champions League final which was scheduled for May 30 at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, has now been postponed indefinitely as corona virus continues to wage on across the world.

UEFA also announced the postponement of the UEFA Women’s Champions League final and the Europa League final, which were originally scheduled for May.

“No decision has yet been made on rearranged dates,” the UEFA statement said.

“The working group, established last week as a result of the conference call among the stakeholders of European football, which was chaired by UEFA President, Aleksander Ceferin, will analyse the options available. The group has already begun its examination of the calendar. Announcements will be made in due course.”

Twelve teams still remain in this season’s Champions League after only half of the competition’s round-of-16 ties have been completed before UEFA postponed the remaining matches due to the virus outbreak.

Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Leipzig and Atalanta have all secured a place in the last eight.

For Chelsea, the Blues were beaten 3-0 by Bayern Munich in the first leg and will need to overturn the result in the Allianz Arena when football resumes.
