Champions League games on the weekend?

There are reports that UEFA could contemplate playing the remaining Champions League season on weekends, an idea that isn’t going down well with clubs in Serie A.

Due to the Coronavirus, all championships and competitions have been suspended, pending the outbreak of the disease to eventually subside.

One hypothesis is to play the remainder of the Champions League season on weekends, with league games being played during the week in order to wrap up the season as soon as possible.

Tuttosport states that this idea doesn’t sit well with many Serie A clubs, despite the Lega Serie A agreeing to such a potential proposal with UEFA yesterday.

Playing games midweek would produce scarcer crowds for Serie A clubs, meaning less match day revenue.
