UEFA has formally postponed the Champions League final, slated to be held in May, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The final was scheduled for 30 May in Istanbul before the coronavirus pandemic forced the four remaining second-leg games on 17-18 March to be delayed indefinitely.

In a statement, UEFA has also announced that Women's Champions League final (scheduled for May 24 in Vienna, Austria) and Europa League final (due on May 27 in Gdansk, Poland) also stand postponed.
