Arsenal’s European involvement could be discussed again next week

Arsenal’s involvement in this season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League could be reviewed again at a UEFA video conference next Thursday.

The Gunners have qualified for the quarter-finals where they will face French club Paris Saint-Germain over two legs.

The competition has been suspended for almost a month due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and there is no official date for when the remaining fixtures will be played. UEFA have been reviewing the situation on a regular basis and remain committed to completing the tournament rather than declaring it void.

UEFA have now issued an update on their official website confirming that a further video conference will be held with the secretaries of their 55 member nations next Thursday. Both domestic and international matters are expected to be on the agenda including the rescheduling of UEFA competitions including the men’s and women’s UEFA Champions League.

It is thought that UEFA are in favour of domestic campaigns being completed first with European football’s governing body possibly willing to let completion dates on their own competitions move back as far as the end of August.

With many countries still either battling the brunt of the Coronavirus or taking cautious steps to reduce lockdown measures, it is impossible to predict when football can return.
