UEFA's 2020 European Championship has been postponed for a year as the world fights to contain the outbreak of the coronavirus, the Norwegian FA tweeted on Tuesday.
UEFA har bestemt at EM utsettes til 2021. Det skal spilles fra 11. juni til 11. juli neste år. Mer informasjon kommer.— NorgesFotballforbund (@nff_info) March 17, 2020
UEFA, who is yet to confirm the decision, has proposed that the June 12-July 12 tournament to be held in 12 countries be put back to June 11-July 11 next year to give the suspended domestic leagues time to be completed, as reported by Reuters.
The proposal was agreed during a video conference with all 55 of its affiliated national football federations and representatives of clubs, leagues and players.
The decision will go before UEFA's Executive Committee for final sign-off later on Tuesday.
