It seems that the stop that has caused the coronavirus could go for long, affecting of this way to the Eurocopa programmed for this summer of 2020. The tournament of selections would have to contest between 12 June and on 12 July, but the suspension of several of the domestic Leagues and the more than presumable of the Champions League could change it everything. Several informations ensure that in the meeting that has programmed the UEFA for this Tuesday 17 could take important decisions on this.

The most stood out, in addition to suspending the League of Champions until having controlled the shoot of this virus, would be to postpone the Eurocopa until the summer of 2020. Also it would have to postpone the Glass America, that also would be this summer, until next year. But this decision goes to bring tail and a lot wrap, since these dates are for the new World-wide of Clubs. This new tournament that announced in style the FIFA will be of June to July of 2021, by what the Eurocopa would remain without place.

As it aims the newspaper 'ACE', avecina wrap between the maximum organism of the world-wide football and the one of the European football. Ceferín, president of the UEFA, would have planned to ask him these dates to the organism chaired by Gianni Infantino, that would have to access so that the tournament of selections happen to 2021. The problem is that this World-wide of Clubs is the big bet of the FIFA for the next years and does not seem simple that want to postpone it. In this World-wide will participate 24 of the best teams of the world and will contest in China.

Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Liverpool, Juventus, Bayern... All the European giants, in addition to the ones of the rest of the world, will be in this championship in which the FIFA has put a lot of hopes. It is evident that if there is not agreement between both organisms, the players only will be able to play a tournament, having all the ones to win the World-wide, since at the end they are his clubs those that pay his wage and can force them to lose the tournament with his countries.

In the case of not being able to postpone the Eurocopa, another idea that goes through the head of Ceferín and of the UEFA is to play the quarter-finals and the semifinals of League of Champions and Europe League to only party. In this case, only they would have to recover the meetings of eighth slopes, four crashes in fourth and two in 'semis', in addition to the final. These dates would be much easier to fit in the calendar without having to trastocarlo too much. Of this form, although the Champions can not contest until principles or mediated of April, the Eurocopa could play without too many problems this summer.

The Eurocopa Feminine also would be in 2021

Besides, in the UEFA also concerns the Eurocopa of 2021 Feminine, that will play in July. If the Masculine becomes a month before, this feminine tournament would lose value and importance, since it would happen to a flat second. This is something that in the maximum organism of the European football wanted to avoid at all costs, but that it could be unavoidable if it gave the worst of the cases. The Tuesday 17 will begin to take decisions, but the wrap promises to go for long by fault of the coronavirus and of a FIFA of which goes to depend how develop everything.
