Of course, it keeps on being very soon to establish date of return of the national football and European. This does not remove that the big organisations, in communion with the associations of clubs and players, are valuing how could fit what subtracts of official calendar for like this can finalise the leagues and European tournaments of the season 2019-20, without falling in more losses multimillionaires for clubs and entities.

The Chain BE has advanced in the last hours that UEFA and ECA would have arrived to the agreement that the leagues contest during the month of July and what subtracts of the European tournaments -Champions League and Europe League- in August. That is the initial forecast, although it is not neither much less definite because it will depend on which are the effects of the pandemia in the weeks to come, and of the rhythm of descent in what to impact refers in the countries affected.

What himself could occur is that the continental tournaments can see modified regarding design and organisation, if the eliminatory that subtract played to only party and in neutral field, of the same form that his respective finals. It treats of an option that no descarta, although logically it is not the ideal and the initial premise is to finish all the parties that subtract for contesting, leaving the calendar as it is.

So much the ECA like the UEFA neither descartan that the parties that subtract for the conclusion of the season contest to enclosed door to avoid burgeon of the coronavirus.

The meetings between ECA and UEFA have only a sense nformativo to day of today, in front of the ignorance of the evolution of the coronavirus to days and weeks seen.

It results impossible to trace, besides, a leaf of general route for all the European football taking into account that the situation is distinct in each country. The season 2019-20, further that in Spain are reducing the cases of contagions and deaths by coronavirus in the last days, follows hanging of a thread. And the evolution of the coming weeks will mark the terms to be followed in the resumption of the competitions.
