Corona also postpones the June matches for European teams


UEFA has decided to postpone all national team matches, including the qualifying accessory to the 2020 European Cup, which was programmed in June due to the pandemic of the emerging Corona Virus virus.

The continental union said in a statement on Wednesday: “All European competition matches, including the international friendly matches, were postponed until further notice.”

The Euro 2021 Women’s Qualifiers matches have also been postponed.

This decision was expected due to the paralysis that affects sport globally, especially European football in light of the “Covid-19” outbreak, and was taken by the Continental Federation after an expanded video conference that included its executive committee with the general secretaries of the fifty-five national federations under its cloak.

The European Union also decided to cancel the final round of the U-17 European Championship scheduled for next May, in addition to the European U-19 Women’s Championship scheduled for July.

The supplement matches were dedicated to determining the last four seats in the oldest European championship, which will be held for the first time in history in 12 cities. Supplement matches were originally scheduled for March, before being postponed to June due to SK.

The European Union had taken in an emergency meeting on 17 March last historic decision to postpone the biggest champions for the teams, European Cup 2020, until the summer of 2021, and suspend all its club competitions “until further notice” due to the outbreak of the “Covid-19” virus.

“Weifa” said at the time that this measure would allow the national championships to complete the 2019-2020 season, hoping to complete it by the end of June.

The Champions League and European League (Europa League) competitions stopped in the final price, and the Women’s Champions League in the quarter-finals.

The spread of the Corona epidemic halted all sporting activities in most of the countries of the world, as was the reason for canceling many sporting events.

The deadly Corona virus sweeps most countries of the five continents since its exit from China, where the total number of infected people in the world has risen to date to nearly 800,000 people, while the number of deaths reached more than 44,000, and Italy is the country most affected by the epidemic, followed by Spain and the United States of America .
