New dates for Youth League conclusion in Nyon

In a change to the original schedule, the UEFA Youth League semi-finals and final will be held on 10 and 13 April respectively at Nyon's Colovray Stadium.

The dates have been changed for the 2014/15 UEFA Youth League final tournament, to be held at the Colovray Stadium opposite UEFA's Swiss headquarters in Nyon.

The semi-finals and final were due to take place on Friday 24 and Monday 27 April respectively. The last-four games will now be played on Friday 10 April, with the decider to follow on Monday 13 April. Kick-off times are yet to be confirmed. All three games will be decided by penalty kicks should a match be level after 90 minutes.

In the inaugural season, FC Barcelona, SL Benfica, Real Madrid CF and FC Schalke 04 made it through the group stage, round of 16 and quarter-finals. Benfica swept aside Madrid and Barça squeezed past Schalke, before La Masia's latest vintage put on a show in the final to ensure Barcelona's name would be the first one etched on the Lennart Johansson trophy. Their victory included a sensational goal from the halfway line from Munir El Haddadi, who has since gone on to make his senior Azulgrana and Spain debuts.
