The forum participants got acquainted with the results of the efforts of two working groups created to find the best solutions for holding European football tournaments after the outbreak of COVID-19.
First of all, a variety of calendar options, were presented covering both national team and club competition matches.
Along with this, the funding of National Associations through UEFA’s HatTrick programme was also discussed. UEFA assured interested parties in the timely implementation of the commitments made in this direction.
At the end of the meeting, there was a strong recommendation given to finish domestic top division and national cup competitions, although it is understood that there may be some special cases.
