UEFA is trying to rescue the 2019/20 season currently postponed due to COVID-19 without excluding the possibility that the C1 Cup and the Premier League will take place the same day.
The C1 Cup and the Premier League are at risk of happening the same day
Matches in the C1 Cup and Premier League may take place over the weekend as one of the new measures introduced by UEFA, all in an effort to save the 2019/20 season from the risk of being canceled due to corona virus.
Leading leagues across Europe have met UEFA and agree that they will do everything they can to finish the season before June 30.
The European soccer governing body chose the date due to contracts, transfer agreements and copyrights.
They also added that the C1 Cup and Europa League qualifiers for the 2020/21 season may need to be adapted to the situation.
Europe’s top leagues still prefer to complete the current season, with the Premier League meeting on Thursday to discuss the action that follows the UEFA decision on Euro 2020 and the European Cups.
The postponement of Euro 2020 has allowed the tournament to end the campaign if the disease situation allows.
Because both the European Cup and the Premier League have to race against time to complete, this easily leads to the possibility of matches in the Premier League taking place the same day as matches in the C1 Cup.
UEFA had not previously allowed domestic matches and the C1 Cup to take place on the same day to prioritize the continental tournament, but now the situation is more complicated.
Another solution is that UEFA will try to limit the aforementioned schedule duplication by scheduling domestic matches in the middle of the week and the European Cup at the weekend.
Currently, 20 Premier League clubs have 9 or 10 matches remaining in the season.
When will the European Cup and the Premier League end after postponing Euro 2019/20 season?

When will the Premier League end?
The UEFA decision will enable the national championships 2019/20 season to be completed in June, or no later than July.

How will the delayed Euro 2019/20 season affect other tournaments?
The UEFA postponement of the Euro 2019/20 season will affect many other tournaments. The European Championship for women’s teams is scheduled to take place in the UK in the summer of 2021 but is considering being moved to the summer of 2021.
Plans to host the U21 European Championship or the Nations League will also have to be rescheduled or canceled to give priority to Euro 2021.
