Champions League Draw Moved from Athens to Nyon

September 9, 2020

ATHENS — The Champions League draw on Oct. 1 has been moved from Athens to Nyon, Switzerland, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

UEFA will make the 32-team group draw at its headquarters with no club officials or spectators.

UEFA intended to stage the draw and the ceremony for its 2019-20 season awards at the new national library complex in Athens.

UEFA says after talks with Greek public authorities that such an event “would violate public health restrictions and constraints regarding indoor events.”

Players who win UEFA’s end-of-season awards could still attend the no-frills replacement event.

UEFA will make the 48-team Europa League draw on Oct. 2 in Nyon.
