European football’s governing body, UEFA went on a meeting on Tuesday to decide the fate of European football due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

The UEFA European Championship which was initially scheduled for the summer of 2020, has now been postponed until 2021.

The competition was initially scheduled to take place across numerous European nations between June 12 and July 12, but has now been shifted until next year.

UEFA confirmed via twitter: “a working group has been set up with the participation of leagues and club representatives to examine calendar solutions that would allow for the completion of the current season.”

Another outcome of the meeting is that all international friendlies have been postponed, while the play-off matches for the upcoming European Championship will go ahead in June, subject to a review.

Also the Champions League final which was initially scheduled to be played on May 30 has been postponed until June 27. The Europa League final will be held three days later on June 24.

The recent changes may afford leagues ample time to wrap up the rest of the season as the world fights off coronavirus.
