European football’s leagues and competitions remain hopeful of finishing the season by June 30, following an opening round of talks this week.
The coronavirus pandemic has led to the mass postponement of fixtures, including Euro 2020, and UEFA has set up two working groups to assess the consequences.
The first conference call took place on Tuesday and included representatives from the European Club Association and the European Leagues, which includes the Premier League, EFL and SPFL.
Football bodies maintained their ambition, agreed last week, to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of June 30, “should the situation improve and resuming playing be appropriate and prudent enough.”
Officials discussed adapting the existing football calendar to include the scheduling of more domestic league matches in midweek, and the remaining Champions League and Europa League matches on weekends, when it is safe to do so.
