Euro 2020 will be postponed until 2021, following a meeting between European football’s powerbrokers.
The tournament, which was supposed to kick-off in Rome on June 12, will be delayed to allow Europe’s domestic leagues – including the Premier League – to finish their seasons, with almost every country in the continent suspending matches in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
June 11 2021 has been the pencilled in as the new start date, with the final on July 11.
The Norwegian FA were the first to break the news, although the decision will be officially signed off by Uefa later on Tuesday.
European football’s governing body is also expected to reveal their plans for both the 2019/20 Champions League and Europa League seasons, which were suspended at the round-of-16 stage last week.
