Euros Postponed Until 2021


The European Football International Tournament has been postponed until 2021 as a result of the Coronavirus.

It has been revealed by the Norwegian Football Association that the tournament due to start on the 12th June this year, will instead be played from the 11th June 2021.

Wales were one of the countries scheduled to take part in the tournament which takes place every 4 years. The FAW have said:

"The Football Association of Wales fully supports the decisions taken by the European football family to postpone UEFA EURO 2020, with the health and safety of everyone being  the most important and only factor to consider.

We understand the inconvenience this will cause amongst our fans who were looking forward to watching Cymru play in the tournament this summer but these are unprecedented times and we will all be working hard to assist where and when we are able to do so.

The completion of the domestic season across Europe is also key and hopefully the solutions discussed today can be implemented following the constant monitoring of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The FAW is now working hard to find solutions for our own domestic competitions and to continue the administration work that is required with the challenges put before us.

Our committed staff will be working remotely across the country as we attempt to ensure that the FAW's business operates as smoothly as possible.

The FAW will continue to monitor the situations concerning COVID-19 on daily basis and we shall keep everyone informed of any updates via our regular communication channels."

Previously all domestic football was postponed by the home nations' respective governing bodies, leaving the footballing world in stasis as a result of the Coronavirus.
