L’Equipe Reporting Euro 2020 Set to be Delayed Until 2021

L’Equipe Reporting Euro 2020 Set to be Delayed Until 2021

Euro 2020 is set to be delayed until 2021, according to L’Equipe.

The international tournament is set to kick off in Rome on June 12th, with Turkey taking on Italy in Rome.

Italy is the European country hit hardest by the current COVID-19 outbreak, with over 12,000 confirmed cases as well as 827 deaths.

So it makes sense that Euro 2020 would be under threat, with La Liga and Serie A among the domestic leagues to be suspended this week while the virus is battled.

UEFA released a statement earlier saying they would invite their member associations together to discuss how best to deal with the current situation.

And now L’Equipe is reporting that UEFA will announce next week that Euro 2020 will be pushed back to 2021.

More disruption to competitions is expected over the coming days and weeks, with many matches already being played behind closed doors or called off completely.

If UEFA were to push Euro 2020 back, it may mean a delay for Scotland in their battle to win a place at the competition.

Steve Clarke’s men are due to play Israel in their first playoff game later this month before taking on either Serbia or Norway if they win.

But those games may be delayed if Euro 2020 is pushed back by UEFA.
