UEFA is expected to formalize radical reforms to the Champions League format at a critical meeting of its executive committee on Monday, which could also see some cities removed as hosts of the delayed Euro 2020.
Moreover, UEFA's need to finalize plans for Euro 2020 is pressing.
- Doubts over Munich, Bilbao, and Dublin.
Postponed by a year due to the pandemic, the European Championship is set to start in Rome on June 11. It is supposed to be played at 12 different venues spread across the continent, a controversial arrangement even before the pandemic brought about widespread travel restrictions.
The Italian capital was only confirmed as a host city last Wednesday when local authorities confirmed spectators would be allowed in up to 25 percent of the capacity of the 68,000-seat Stadio Olimpico.
It joins eight other cities -- Saint-Petersburg, Baku, Budapest, Amsterdam, Bucharest, Copenhagen, Glasgow, and London -- in being confirmed. However, the number of fans allowed into stadiums will vary from one venue to the other.
However, uncertainty remains over the three other host cities.
Munich, Bilbao, and Dublin were all given until Monday to provide UEFA with additional information on their plans for spectators.
