UEFA announce intention to complete all European leagues

UEFA have released a statement outlining their intention to see all European leagues completing their current campaign by June 30.


Due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, which has caused huge disruption in the daily lives across the globe, leagues across the

Old Continent have been suspended.


That led to major changes in the world of football too. On Tuesday it got clear that Euro 2020 will be postponed until the summer of 2021 in order to free up space for the European leagues to finish their surrent season.



The original end date of the season is May 30, but now it is pushed back with a month and will end on June 30.


In the statement that UEFA released is said that there might be "possible limitations or drops of current exclusive calendar slots, potentially resulting in the scheduling of domestic league matches in mid-week and scheduling of UEFA club competitions matches on weekends".


It is also mentioned that there is possibility adaptations of the 2020/21 Champions League and Europa League qualifying rounds, which ordinarily begin in July for many football teams.



“We all know that this terrible virus that is all across Europe made football and all life in Europe quite impossible. We knew we had to stop the competitions,” said UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.


“We think postponing the Euros was the only way to give a chance to all the national leagues and all the club competitions to finish their competitions,” he added.


“That is not sure for now but we should now think about the health of the fans and the players.


“That is why we have decided today to postpone the Euros and we have full, 100 per cent support of all 55 national associations, the European leagues, the European Club Association and FIFPro.”


However, it is clear that UEFA and all individual associations want to complete the current season.


That means that the season won't be nulled as some of the suggestions said and Liverpool will lift their 19th league title once the season resumes.


For the first time in 30 years Liverpool will be champions and will lift the title, whether that’s against Man City on April 5 or at a later date.
