News: UEFA to meet on April 23 to discuss plans for resumption of football season Read more

UEFA will hold an Executive Committee meeting by videoconference next Thursday, April 23, European football’s governing body has confirmed, as it continues to look at ways of restarting the season in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.

Before that, the heads of each of UEFA’s 55 member associations will come together next Tuesday to look at developments across both domestic and continental competitions. UEFA is also set to meet with the powerful European Club Association (ECA) and the European Leagues grouping on Wednesday. 

The meetings could bring confirmation of the postponement of the next women’s European Championship by a year to 2022 — following the earlier decision to postpone the men’s Euro to 2021 — but any other firm decisions may be unlikely. 

All leading leagues across Europe, as well as the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, were halted in mid-March as countries went into lockdown due to the pandemic. The only country that has kept on playing is Belarus.
