Euro 2020 has been postponed until next summer

It has been announced that Euro 2020 has been postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this is according to Norway’s football association.

The Norwegian FA said on Twitter:

“UEFA has decided that the European Championship is postponed to 2021. It will be played from 11 June to 11 July next year. More information coming.”

UEFA, European football’s governing body, is holding a series of conference calls with national associations on Tuesday to discuss Euro 2020, as well as other events held by the organisation.

The tournament is supposed to be played across Europe in 12 different countries, including England.

This summer’s Tokyo Olympic games could also be under jeopardy after it was revealed that the International Olympic Committee is set to meet on Tuesday. Organisers of the event have so far maintained that the sporting festival will still be going ahead.

The move, though unconfirmed, leaves a question over whether UEFA’s other main tournaments, the Champions League and Europa League, will be finished.

UEFA’s move comes as no surprise, given sporting events and leagues have been postponed or cancelled in growing numbers in recent days.

More to come soon…
