COVID-19: Latest Updates on UEFA Competitions

 

UEFA has cancelled June’s round of international fixtures, including the Euro 2020 play-offs, and has postponed the current Champions League and Europa League campaigns until further notice, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

It is understood that one option which is being considered is that the two club competitions could now be completed in July and August.

All these decisions were taken following today’s video conference meeting with the general secretaries of all 55 UEFA member associations and recommendations made by the working groups created on 17 March. After this meeting, the UEFA Executive Committee took a series of decisions.

 

 

On competition matters:

  1. All national team matches for men and women due to be played in June 2020 are postponed until further notice. This includes the play-off matches for UEFA EURO 2020 and qualifying matches for UEFA Women’s EURO 2021
  2. All other UEFA competition matches, including the centralised international friendly matches, remain postponed until further notice.
  3. Youth national team competitions:

    • The UEFA European Women’s Under-19 Championship final tournament scheduled for July 2020 is cancelled;
    • The UEFA European Women’s Under-17 Championship final tournament scheduled for May 2020 is postponed until further notice (as it is a qualifying competition for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup);
    • The UEFA European Under-19 Championship final tournament scheduled for July 2020 is postponed until further notice (as it is a qualifying competition for the FIFA U-20 World Cup)
