UEFA postpone international fixtures in June

The Spanish Football Federation explained the aim is, “to hand the June international window over to the leagues to allow domestic competitions to be completed”.UEFA has held a teleconference attended by the secretary generals of its 55 national federations. After the meeting, the UEFA Executive Committee adopted a series of measures, most notably the postponement of all international team games set to take place in June 2020. Furthermore, all other fixtures in competitions overseen by UEFA, as well as international friendlies, have been suspended until further notice.

Following the video call, the Real Federación Española de Fútbol (RFEF) explained on their website that the decision had been made with the aim of “handing the June international window over to the leagues to allow domestic competitions to be completed”. The RFEF also stressed, “the European governing body is working on two scenarios. On the one hand, being able to resume competitive action at the start of June, and on the other, waiting until the end of the month or beginning of July. As such, UEFA has developed two proposed calendars which include domestic league, Europa League and Champions League fixtures. UEFA and the federations accept that, if forecasts come to fruition, there will be football in July and August. Should said plans prove impossible to complete, a new schedule proposal will be assessed”.
