UEFA has today revealed how it intends to complete the 2019/20 Europa League season.
The competition has been on hold since Thursday 12th March due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but a revised schedule to conclude this season's competition was confirmed following Wednesday’s UEFA Executive Committee meeting.
The Europa League quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will be played as a straight knockout tournament across four cities in Germany in August: Cologne, Duisburg, Düsseldorf and Gelsenkirchen, with all these ties being single-leg fixtures.
However, a decision is pending on whether the round of 16 second legs will take place at the home team’s stadium or in Germany on either 5th or 6th August. The venue, date and kick-off time of Wolves’ second leg with Olympiacos will be released on wolves.co.uk and Wolves’ social media accounts once confirmed.
Speaking about the decisions, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin, said: “I am delighted that we are able to resume almost all of our competitions. I am confident that we will not have to endure the fans’ absence for long and that they will be allowed into stadiums sooner rather than later.
“UEFA took a bold decision when it decided to postpone Euro 2020. But in doing so, we created the space which has allowed domestic club competitions across the continent to resume, where possible, and play to a conclusion.
