The matches of the Champions League and Europa League of the 2019/20 season, as well as the meetings of the qualification rounds of the 2020/21 season, will be held without spectators, according to the press service of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

It's worth mentioning that the games of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League and the Europa League will take place at the arenas of home teams. Such a decision was made at a meeting of the Executive Committee of the organization.

Consequently, in light of the current situation, the UEFA Executive Committee felt it prudent to conclude that UEFA matches should take place behind closed doors until further notice. This decision was made in agreement with the national associations and authorities of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League, 2019/20 UEFA Europa League and 2019/20 UEFA Women’s Champions League final eight tournaments' hosts Portugal, Germany and Spain. This restriction will also apply to the remaining matches in the 2019/20 UEFA Youth League.
