European football governing body,
UEFA has opened the door for domestic league and cup competitions to be cancelled “in special cases”.

The decision taken on Tuesday, April 21, during a video conference call by UEFA members, is due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The national member associations of European football’s governing body gathered for a conference call on Tuesday for an update on “a variety of calendar options” to complete the 2019-20 season.

Previously, UEFA,
had cautioned that domestic leagues cancelling their seasons prematurely risked their clubs being excluded from its competitions in the future, but may now consider allowing curtailment of campaigns.

“There was a strong recommendation given to finish domestic top division and cup competitions, but some special cases will be heard once guidelines concerning participation to European competitions – in case of a cancelled league – have been developed,” a statement from UEFA read.

According to UEFA, any decisions on those guidelines would be announced after Thursday’s meeting of its executive committee.
