FIFA have called a council conference call for Wednesday where they will accept the postponements of Euro 2020 and Copa America 2020 until next year.

The Club World Cup, due to be played in the summer of 2021, will also be discussed, with that tournament set to be postponed either until later in 2021, 2022 or 2023.

In a statement from President Gianni Infantino, FIFA pledged a direct contribution of $10m to the World Health Organisation COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

“To protect the interests of all stakeholders and competition organisers, whether they be national, continental or worldwide, I have called for a Bureau of the Council conference call tomorrow to see how we can progress matters collectively.

He said.

“During this call, I will suggest the following next steps: to accept the postponements of the CONMEBOL 2020 Copa America and the UEFA Euro 2020 to the June/July of 2021; to decide at a later stage – when there is more clarity on the situation – when to reschedule the new FIFA Club World Cup, later in 2021, in 2022 or in 2023.”

He said also.
