Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) will discuss the postponement of Euro 2020 during an emergency video conference involving all 55 European football associations next Tuesday.

The spread of the coronavirus has dealt a big blow on the global sporting calendar, European football has been thrown into chaos causing the Champions League and Europa League to be suspended.

The coronavirus crisis has led to Euro 2020 being placed in serious doubt, and UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has summoned next week’s conference — to be staged over video to avoid unnecessary travel — in order for the member associations to attempt to address the growing question marks over European football.
