‘European football aiming to resume mid-May’



Top leagues and competitions in Europe are planning to resume in mid-May following Euro 2020’s postponement, says La Liga president Javier Tebas.

The coronavirus pandemic has led to the suspension of all club football in the continent.

The Euro 2020 move to 2021 means there is more time to complete domestic league seasons.

“There are 30 affected leagues, 30 cup tournaments, and we have to co-ordinate each schedule at both a national and international level,” said Tebas.

“In mid-May we should be back with all European competitions. If circumstances permit, we could bring that forward.

“We need to work together.”

Meanwhile, the English and Scottish football Thursday extended their suspensions until April 30.
