Champions League plan that will disturb Chelsea this summer

The Blues’ hopes of overcoming Bayern Munich may seem remote but they could still be impacted by the governing body’s plans to complete the competition

This season’s Champions League final will be relocated from Istanbul, with Uefa set to lay out new plans for completing the competition following a meeting of their executive committee in mid-June. Football fans from all over the world can buy online Champions League Tickets to enjoy its stunning performances.

While Tottenham Hotspur is already out having been comprehensively beaten by RB Leipzig in the round of 16, Chelsea is clinging on to a glimmer of hope as they trail Bayern Munich 3-0 following the first leg of their tie.

The final was meant to take place tomorrow night but, according to the New York Times, the rescheduled showpiece will not be at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium.

Turkey has been especially badly hit by the coronavirus pandemic and talks over an alternative location are in progress, with Lisbon and several German cities being considered.

The Europa League final, which was planned for Gdansk in Poland, may also be held elsewhere.

One idea with plenty of support among decision-makers is that the remainder of both competitions is packed into one a period in a neutral location, similar to last summer’s Nations League finals, likely in the first half of August.

There remain concerns over international travel and restricting the remaining fixtures to one area would overcome several logistical issues.

Much like the Premier League’s determination to complete the season, Uefa would face a damagingly expensive rebate to TV companies should the competition is voided.

That would have grave consequences for clubs across Europe who are reliant on prize money, with participants from the continent’s lesser leagues set to be hit most.

A Uefa statement read: “A working group has been set up with the participation of representatives from the leagues and clubs to examine calendar solutions and format options that would allow for the completion of the current season.

“A variety of options are being looked at and no decisions have been made at this stage.”

There is no rugby for the Springboks as South Africa maintains the ban

There is no rugby for the Springboks as South Africa maintains the ban

The South African government upheld the ban on all contact sports competitions on Saturday due to the coronavirus. Meaning the country’s professional rugby squads and their world champion Springboks will remain out of action.

Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa’s announcement came as South Africa prepares to further ease the shutdown on Monday and open most of its economy as part of a gradual relaxation of restrictions. Rugby fans can book British and Irish Lions Tour Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.

Professional contactless sports competitions will be allowed in some regions and Mthethwa gave teams, including rugby, permission to resume training. But only if there are protocols to minimize the possibilities of transmission of COVID-19. All squads have 14 days to submit detailed plans on their protocols for approval before they can train, the minister said. The conditions include the mandatory examination of athletes.

South African Rugby CEO Jurie Roux welcomed the move as “an opportunity for our players to improve their blocking training regimes by increasing their physical work for an eventual return to play.” He added that he would seek clarification on whether full contact training would be allowed.

SA Rugby had hoped to return to play and hold a national event to win money, matching the planned competitions in New Zealand and Australia.

South African

The South African Super Rugby squads have been out of action since the southern hemisphere club competition was postponed in mid-March. The Springboks’ July sports against Scotland and Georgia, the first time the national squad was scheduled to play since winning the World Cup last year, were postponed when World Rugby announced that its entire mid-year test window would be rescheduled.

Cash strapped SA Rugby has announced salary cuts of between 25% and 43%, plus for its players, this month in a struggle to save up to $ 70 million. Hoping that South African Rugby has approached the government with plans to return to play, and Roux said earlier this month the risk of transmission could be well managed by our protocols.

“We do not operate hospitals or build ventilators and we are not a critical industry for the South African economy, but we believe that we add great value to national life in other ways,” said Roux.

Mthethwa will allow professional contactless sports like golf, tennis, cricket, athletics, and swimming to take place starting Monday, without spectators and under strict conditions.

However, sports events cannot be held at designated “hotspots” due to their high rates of COVID-19 infection. They contain almost all the major sports cities Johannesburg, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban, and Port Elizabeth.

Champions League Final to Be Moved From Turkey

Champions League Final to Be Moved From Turkey

Club soccer’s biggest event will be held at a new venue amid ongoing concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.

The Champions League final, one of sport’s most-watched annual events, will not be held at its planned site, Istanbul, amid the ongoing crisis brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

European soccer’s governing body UEFA, the event’s organizer, is now considering a number of alternative venues as it plans to complete the competition, which was part way through its round of 16 stage when — like most other sporting events — it paused indefinitely.

Now with national leagues starting to emerge to complete their seasons, UEFA is concluding talks on how to finish the Champions League and its secondary Europa League in August. The Europa League final had been set to be held in Gdansk, Poland. A decision will be made after a meeting of the executive committee on June 17, said the person, who declined to speak publicly because talks on the alternative sites are ongoing.

UEFA will hold further talks with Turkish officials next week, to finalize an agreement to move the event. Istanbul could be picked to host the final at a later date.

Leagues that have restarted, or are planning to restart, are adopting severe hygiene protocols to ensure games can be played again safely while the virus continues to be a danger. UEFA is certain to adopt similar strategies, meaning that the games are being planned to take place in empty stadiums and that the players involved will face regular tests. With European travel limited, and ongoing quarantine laws in some countries, it is also likely that most of the remaining games will take place in the place picked to host the final.

The Spanish news media reported that UEFA was planning to host this year’s Champions League final, an event that draws more viewers globally than the Super Bowl, in Lisbon. There are a small number of other candidates, according to the person with knowledge of the matter.

“A working group has been set up with the participation of representatives from the leagues and clubs to examine calendar solutions and format options that would allow for the completion of the current season,” said a UEFA spokesman. “A variety of options is being looked at and no decisions have been made at this stage.”

What’s certain is the competition is unlikely to look like anything that has gone before, with calendar constraints necessitating it be completed in as short a time possible to allow players to rest before starting next season in September. The original date for the final at Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul was May 30.

“A working group has been set up with the participation of representatives from the leagues and clubs to examine calendar solutions and format options that would allow for the completion of the current season,” said a UEFA spokesman. “A variety of options is being looked at and no decisions have been made at this stage.”

Tottenham’s benefit over Man United and Chelsea in Premier League top-four battle

Jose Mourinho’s men were three games without a win when the season was suspended, sitting seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. The 2019/20 Premier League season is currently frozen in time. The coronavirus pandemic has led to a nationwide lockdown and the postponement of all sporting fixtures.  But it has been confirmed that the campaign will resume next month. Champions League fans from all over the world can buy online Champions League Tickets to enjoy its stunning performances.

In the case of Tottenham Hotspur, they will be looking to make a charge towards qualifying for Europe. Possibly even the Champions League, particularly if Manchester City’s European ban is upheld.

Since Jose Mourinho was appointed, only Liverpool and the two Manchester teams have earned more league points than Spurs. But how have they tended to do in the final nine league matches of seasons in the past?

As a general rule, they haven’t been as successful as in the opening three-quarters of the campaign. Last year was the ultimate example of this, where Spurs took just 10 points from their final nine matches, though of course reaching the Champions League final played a part in that. 

Tottenham fans will be hoping their team takes inspiration from 2016/17 when they won eight of their last nine games, as unlikely as it is that a repeat performance will occur. The good news is that most of their toughest remaining fixtures are at home, with only one of their four games on the road against a club currently in the top half of the table.

In terms of the traditional big clubs, Manchester United and Arsenal still have to visit Tottenham in 2019/20. United won their last season, but it was their first victory at Spurs since 2012, and the Gunners have only picked up three points once in their last 11 league visits.

Tottenham’s final home game in theory sees third place Leicester City visit north London. History suggests it should be entertaining, as the last five meetings at Spurs have included 5-4 and 4-3 home wins.

Aside from those three games, Tottenham’s only other match against a team currently in the top half sees them travel to Bramall Lane. There’s no recent history between the teams, aside from a 1-1 draw last November. It should be close when they next clash.

Spurs’ other remaining games on home turf see them host Everton and West Ham United. Tottenham fans won’t need reminding that the Hammers won on their patch last season, though Spurs did return the favor in Mourinho’s first game in charge. As for the Toffees, their last win at Tottenham was back in 2008. The final three matches on the road will see Tottenham travel to face Bournemouth, Newcastle, and then Crystal Palace on the final weekend.

Spurs suffered defeat at the Vitality Stadium in the penultimate game of 2018/19 but had won 5-1 and 4-1 in two of their three visits before that. Newcastle may bring back painful memories of a 5-1 defeat on the final day of 2015/16, though both Tyneside meetings since have resulted in away wins. 

That just leaves Spurs with Selhurst Park, and a fixture they’ve won 1-0 in each of the last three seasons. Who knows if it will be the final match once the rest of the season is rescheduled, but there’s every chance Tottenham will head into the summer on a high if it is.
