VIEW OF BARS IN CITY CENTRE STORY: May 27 should have been the day Gdansk hosted the Europa League final, but like so many other sports events, it was postponed by UEFA due to the novel coronavirus.

Soccer, as with most sports around the world, has been brought to a near standstill by the COVID-19 pandemic, with the German Bundesliga being the first major European League to resume last week after a two-month hiatus.

The Europa League and Champions League are stalled in the middle of its round of 16.

UEFA, European soccer's governing body, wants the Europa League final to be held in Gdansk on Aug.

26 and the Champions League final played three days later in Istanbul.

Those decisions are likely to be made at UEFA's executive committee meeting on June 17.
