The governing body of the game in Europe confirmed that Euro 2020 has been put back by a year to try and help domestic competitions finish their existing 2019/20 seasons.
The Premier League has been suspended until April 3, although that date is merely seen as a placeholder, while the Champions League and Europa League have both been suspended with last-16 ties yet to finish.
Manchester United are in pole position to reach the Europa League quarter-finals, having beaten LASK Linz 5-0 in Austria last week, while Manchester City are also favorites to reach the last eight of the Champions League, having won the first leg of their tie with Real Madrid 2-1 in the Bernabeu.
But there is now uncertainty over if and how those competitions can conclude, given the health pandemic sweeping the continent.
The decision to push the European Championships back a year has given domestic leagues and club competitions under UEFA’s auspices the chance to finish in the summer, but a decision on dates has yet to be made.UEFA Representative saying
A UEFA spokesperson said: "An operational group has been set up with the contribution of leagues and club agents to inspect calendar solutions that would permit for the completion of the present season and any other significance of the conclusions made today."
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said: We are at the controls of a sport that massive numbers of people live and inhale that has been laid low by this imperceptible and fast-moving opponent.
It is at eras like these, that the football municipal needs to show obligation, unity, unselfishness, and solidarity. The health of followers, staff, and players has to be our number one importance and in that spirit, UEFA listed a range of options so that competitions can finish this season securely and I am proud of the response of my colleagues across Europe football.
There was a factual spirit of co-operation, with everyone spotting that they had to sacrifice something to accomplish the best outcome.
It was important that, as the leading body of European football, UEFA led the process and made the principal sacrifice. Moving Euro 2020 comes at a massive cost for UEFA but we will do our best to guarantee that the vital funding for grassroots, women’s football and the growth of the game in our 55 nations are not affected.
Resolution over profit has been our managerial principle in taking this conclusion for the good of European football as a whole. Football is an inspirational and powerful force in culture.
