PSG have confirmed they will play their remaining Champions League home games abroad, with sporting events in France banned until September.

PSG have confirmed they have no choice but to play their remaining Champions League home games abroad.

Sporting events in France were banned until September at least, leaving the Ligue 1 more or less canceled.

That decision also left PSG in doubt about their Champions League participation.

The French giants saw off Borussia Dortmund on a 3-2 aggregate victory to qualify for the Champions League quarter-final back in March.

The Champions League itself is still in doubt of being completed this season, but PSG are taking no chances and took to announce their intentions for the competition.

As per the Daily Mail, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi revealed to the public his side will look to play their remaining home games abroad, should the competition continue.

“We respect of course the French Government decision,” Nasser Al-Khelaifi said.

“We plan on competing in the Champions League with UEFA agreement – wherever and whenever it is held. If it is not possible to play in France we will play our matches abroad subject to the best conditions for our players and the safety of all our staff.”

If that decision is granted, PSG could have two fixtures to play abroad.

Their home fixture in the quarter final and the semi-final, should they progress further.
