After five months of competition suspended, the Champions League can finally be held again on 8-9 August. The rest of the matches in the round of 16 will continue, and subsequent rounds will also continue until the finals – planned to be held on August 23, 2020.
UEFA is very grateful after the Champions League can be held again. To that end, the blue continent’s soccer authorities requested that each team’s match jersey be made specifically.
On its official website, UEFA asks the jersey of each team that competes to embed the word ‘Thank You’ or in Indonesian means ‘Thank You’. The writing was a form of gratitude to the medical officers who fought COVID-19.
In addition to the special jersey, each team that plays will also take a moment of silence. It was addressed to victims of the corona pandemic, which according to the WHO, had reached more than 600 thousand deaths.
“I am glad our competition can be held again, but we must not forget those who are dedicated and personally willing to sacrifice so that it gives us the opportunity to play again,” the UEFA president said. Aleksander Ceferin.
