Reports from Uefa indicate that the rest of the 2019-20 Champions League and Europa League games will be played like the traditional international tournaments, where all matches will take place in one country. This means that the Champions League quarter, semi-finals, and final may take place in Lisbon between 12 and 23 August this year. On the other hand, the remaining round of 16 matches may still take place in the home stadiums for the competing teams.

If the games are moved to Portugal, they will be played either at Lisbon’s Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica or Estádio José Alvalade. The other fields that can be used if necessary are Estádio Dom Afonso Henriques in Guimarães, or Porto’s Estádio do Dragão. The final will take place at Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica on 23 August, with the draw for the quarter-finals taking place on 10 July. For the Europa League, matches will take place in Germany, in Cologne, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, and Gelsenkirchen between 10 and 21 August. The decision on the venue of the remaining round of 16 matches, which will be played on 5 or 6 August, is yet to be made.

A single game will determine the two ties in which the first leg is yet to be played, between Inter Milan and Getafe, and Sevilla and AS Roma. The host stadium for the final is yet to be determined. Women’s Champions League games will be played at the San Mamés Stadium in Bilbao and the Anoeta Stadium in San Sebastián between 21 and 30 August, and the final rounds will be played as a knock-out tournament in Spain. Uefa has also indicated that all cities scheduled to host matches in its Euro 2020 international tournament, will remain venues for the rescheduled tournament, and all tickets earlier sold will remain valid for this event.
