The final of the EUFA European League for the 2019/2020 season will take place in Gdansk in northern Poland, the exact date has not yet been announced.
It was originally planned for the final match on May 27, but due to the Sars-Cov-2 coronavirus pandemic and related circumstances, the event was suspended, as were many across Europe.
Zbigniew Boniek, head of the Polish Football Association (PZPN), hopes that the Polish city will remain host to the finals. "Of course we want to keep it in Gdansk. I know a lot depends on it, and the information is unofficial at the moment, but we want the finals to take place with the fans. If it doesn't work out, we will definitely look for alternative solutions, "Boniek told Polish TV.
Football is gradually returning to Europe. Some leagues, including the Polish, have been revived. The most watched leagues such as the Spanish La Liga and the English Premier League have defined the dates of their starts. On the other hand, leagues like the French LIGUE 1 and the Dutch Eredivisie canceled their sequel. In Poland, however, from June 19, the first fans will also be allowed in stadiums with a maximum occupancy of 25% of the total capacity.
One of the scenarios of the European League envisages playing the last two matches in the round of 16 on August 6. Then the quarterfinals of August 10, the semifinal matches of August 17 and 20 and the final match of August 26 or 7 in Gdansk.
PZPN also came with the information that the final match of the Polish Cup will not take place for the first time since the 2013/2014 season at the PGE Narodowy Stadium in Warsaw. The final match found its place on July 24, 2020 in the Lublin Arena in eastern Poland.
