In a statement, UEFA said that clubs are encountering travel restrictions issued by national governments. In addition, the association indicates that the health and safety of the people participating in the tournament is a priority. "We have to conclude that the conditions to restart the UEFA Youth League are not met in the current circumstances."

The youth tournament already had an adjusted set-up for the pandemic this season. Where normally a group stage was played first, the Youth League was planned to only consist of a series of knockout rounds with single leg ties this season.
