Football: Euros and Copa America moved to 2021 due to coronavirus chaos

Euro 2020 and the Copa America have both been moved to the summer of 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

UEFA said priority was being given to the completion of domestic competitions, as it announced the Euros, originally planned for June and July this year, would be postponed until the summer of 2021.

It held a teleconference with representatives from its 55 member associations to discuss developments earlier on Tuesday in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.

UEFA had already suspended the Champions League and the Europa League competitions, while national football bodies around the world have suspended their national leagues.

Copa America announced it would also be moving fixtures from this summer to 2021, to be played between Jun 11 to July 11.
