UEFA have announced they will meet next week to again discuss how to conclude the 2019-20 season amid the effects of coronavirus.
Football across the continent has been brought to an almost complete standstill by the Covid-19 pandemic, with all major leagues along with Champions League and Europa League competitions postponed on the grounds of public safety.
No firm resolution has yet been made as to how the seasons can be concluded, or whether results will have to be annulled or leagues brought to an early stop.
On Thursday, UEFA announced their executive committee will meet via videoconference next Thursday, April 23, to discuss the latest developments regarding the impact caused by the coronavirus outbreak on European football.
Topics will include possible resolutions to UEFA competitions this season, and how best to organise the Champions League and Europa League in the 2020-21 campaign.
It was also announced that the UEFA general secretaries – the representatives of their 55 member associations – will also meet next Tuesday, April 21, to look at developments across both domestic and European competitions.
These will include whether leagues should be abandoned or continued, whether current standings should be taken into account, and how best to organise next season and who should be national representatives in continental competitions.
Claims and rumours about how UEFA will resolve this unprecedented situation have been numerous in recent weeks, with the organisation having to deny that they have set an August 3 deadline for this year’s Champions League to be completed.
