The spread of coronavirus pandemic has resulted into the postponement of Euro 2020 until 2021.

According to BBC, this development occurred when European football’s governing body made the decision during an emergency video conference involving major stakeholders on Tuesday.

After the decision to postpone the tournament which was due to take place from 12 June-12 July this summer was announced, the new date will now run from 11 June to 11 July next year.

Another development that has occurred as a result of the postponement is that, it provides a chance for European leagues that have been suspended to now be completed.

Uefa now has a clash with the Women’s European Championship, which is due to be held in England in 2021, beginning on 7 July, by moving the European Championship.

The Nations League and the European Under-21 Championships are also scheduled to take place next summer.
