UEFA have confirmed today that Euro 2020 will be postponed by 12 months and it will take place next year on June 11, 2021.

The decision has been made due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Premier League and Football League are all suspended till April 3 at the least, and now there will no Euro competition this year.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the club competitions could be extended till June or maybe beyond that. In such a scenario, the Euro tournament would have become a barrier in completing the domestic leagues around Europe.

Graham Smyth of the Yorkshire Evening Post has claimed that several of Leeds players were expected to participate in Euro 2020 this year.

Stuart Dallas was due to play in Northern Ireland’s Euro 2020 play-off semi-final in Bosnia, while Gjanni Alioski, Liam Cooper, Mateusz Klich, and Tyler Roberts could have participated for North Macedonia, Scotland, Poland and Wales respectively.

Leeds fans have taken to Twitter to comment on Smyth’s post, with some suggesting that it has come as good news as it will provide time for the season to be completed.
