The United European Football Association announced that they’d implemented strategic plans that’ll see football resumed by the latest of August 2020. Domestic leagues under the UEFA were informed not to terminate their respective seasons, ensuring that these competitions will be played to guarantee the integrity of European Football. This decision was approved by the European Club Association and European League Commission. Multiple athletes, medical experts and politicians have advised against this plan until the pandemic is confirmed to be eliminated.
The President of UEFA provided this announcement during a public streaming event to supporters. The ECA Chairman and ELC President joined him. These three men determined that their analyst’s predictions for an August restart are accurate. However, it was noted that government authorities would dictate the conditions of a reset. The European Club Association President urged domestic leagues to keep their seasons active. Player associations with European nations could demand immediate closure for personal safety. Multiple sporting analysts believe this’ll happen with the Premier League and European Football League.
Players with the Europa and Champions League would be forced into competing. This doesn’t mean that Player Unions under UEFA haven’t been reviewing the legal requirements and regulatory frameworks associated with this association. Any incarnation of legislation that allowed for the safety of players during global events will be implicated. Most athletes worldwide don’t want to risk their safety for the finances of executives, who are already wealthy.
Analysts with the United European Football Association are continuously reviewing the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes assessing the different legislations and self-isolation measures enacted. Nations like Italy aren’t supporting sporting events for a prolonged period, which will more than likely extend past Summer 2020. This will continue toward the United Kingdom and Germany, who are also facing high rates of infection.
Executives with the UEFA are being too hopeful and could find themselves being fined by European Governments for not listening to the advice of medical experts. It should be noted that European Leagues with UEFA are maintaining a teleconference call on March 3rd. They’ll provide their input on this decision, which could force the hand of executives to terminate UEFA Events for an entire season.
