EURO 2020 has been postponed until the summer of 2021.

The Norwegian FA confirmed the news on their social media accounts as they say the tournament will now be played from 11 June to 11 July 2021.

UEFA held a videoconference on Tuesday, to which they invited their 55 member associations, the boards of the European Club Association and the European Leagues and a rep from FIFPro.

With Europe now the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, EURO 2020 was due to be held across 12 venues in 12 different countries in a special anniversary edition of the tournament.

“The health of fans, staff and players has to be the number one priority. There was a real spirit of co-operation with everyone realizing they had to sacrifice something. Moving EURO 2020 comes at a huge cost to UEFA but we will do our best to make sure our funding to grassroots projects across our 55 members associations continues. Purpose over profit has been our guiding principle,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said.

After making the decision on EURO 2020, they are also expected to condense both the UEFA Champions League and Europa League and announce the plans for that on Tuesday.
