UEFA finally has decided what to do with the Euro, which would take place this year. Following the current situation happening in Europe, the European confederation has chosen to postpone the tournament by one year.

The new dates for the Euro will range from June 11 to July 11, in 2021. This way, they make room on the calendar for the national leagues and both Champions and Europa League, making it possible for those to come to an end.

That’s wonderful news, mainly for Liverpool fans, who are scared to death of the possibility of the Premier League season is declared null and void, and they get their Premier League title robbed off.

This new date, in principle, would coincide for four days with the Women’s Euro, but now, the Women’s competition may be postponed to 2022. The entity also indicated that the fans who already bought their tickets and won’t be able to attend on the new dates will have a total refund. Fair enough.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said that football was hit by an “invisible and fast opponent”, so it was necessary to show responsibility and put the health of the fans, the players and every single person that participates in a football match, as a priority.

The Euro 2020 would celebrate the 60 years of the competition and, because of that, for the first time ever, the tournament would be played across the continent. 12 cities in 12 different countries would host the matches. The semifinals and final would be played in London, at the beautiful Wembley Stadium.

20 of the 24 national teams that would play were already known and the groups were already drawn. The playoff to see the last four national teams would take place this March, but obviously, it was postponed and now the date is in early June, which will also have all the friendly matches scheduled for the next international break.

Honestly, it was the only thing that could be done. Many Leagues in Europe are close to their final matchday, and it would be terrible for the clubs, fans, players… Basically, everybody, if they just couldn’t finish it. This change also occurred in America, in which they will also postpone the Copa America to 2021, at the same time as the Euro.
