UEFA Call for ‘Maximum Efforts’ to Finish SPFL Competitions by June 30

UEFA Call for ‘Maximum Efforts’ to Finish SPFL Competitions by June 30

UEFA have called for Scottish football teams to put ‘maximum efforts’ into finishing their domestic competitions by June 30.

Top-flight fixtures all across the globe, including Scotland, came to a standstill at the weekend as governments continue to fight the spread of the potentially deadly Covid-19 Coronavirus, with it remaining to be seen when games would recommence.

However, after a video conference between UEFA nations earlier today, the European game’s governing body has now issued some concrete guidelines for finishing the campaign – with everyone asked to have their season wrapped-up by the end of June.

The scheduled European Championship has now been moved to the summer of 2021, and a statement on the official UEFA website read: “1. If the situation allows, maximum efforts will be made to complete all competitions in the national leagues and European cups by 30 June 2020.

“2. There will be no exclusivity for the individual games: national leagues will be able to be played in the middle of the week, and matches in European cups during weekends.

“3. The dates of the qualifying rounds for the European cups in the 2020/21 season will be determined depending on the completion of individual national leagues.”

What do you think of the new information released this afternoon, and will clubs in Scotland have enough time to finish the season by the last week in June?
