Euro 2020 pushed to 2021

Euro 2020

Euro 2020 is set to be pushed back by 12 months to become Euro 2021 as part of UEFA’s proposals to combat the scheduling issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Football competitions around the world have been brought to a halt by the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.

The Norwegian FA was the first to confirm plans that UEFA's international tournament will become Euro 2021 and kick off on June 11, 2021.

Efforts are now being made to ensure that the current season does not become null and void.

UEFA has opened discussions with European football leaders and charged its executive committee to come up with a plan of action which is acceptable to all concerned.

At domestic level, the intention is to play the regular season through to a finish, with campaigns closing before June 30, while the Champions League final is expected to be pushed back to the end of June 2020.

International fixtures which have been cancelled in the March break are now set to take place over the summer.

The 2021 Nations League Finals, which was supposed to be staged in June 2021, is being moved to the following September.

There are a number of other matters yet to be addressed, with European nations intended to be taking in 2022 World Cup qualifiers next summer.
