Also, the Europa League group stage draw as well as 2019/20 UEFA Europa League Player of the Season award will take place a day later.

“In spite of the globally acknowledged effective handling of the COVID-19 pandemic by the Greek authorities, all parties agreed that the top priority must remain public health and that it currently would not be possible to organize an event of such a size with guests in Athens, as it would violate public health restrictions and constraints regarding indoor events,” UEFA said in a statement.

UEFA clarified that the events will take place behind closed doors, with no club representatives or media, but with awards winners.
