UEFA has decided to postpone Euro 2020 and move the tournament to next year.

The event was scheduled for this summer from June 12 to July 12 across 12 countries, including England, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.

Wembley Stadium was due to host seven matches during the tournament, including the semi-finals and final.

But it has now been confirmed that the event will be delayed for 12 months and is now scheduled to take place from June 11, 2021 to July 11, 2021.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Norwegian Football Association announced: ‘UEFA has decided that the European Championship is postponed to 2021.

‘It will be played from 11 June to 11 July next year.’

UEFA held meetings on Tuesday to discuss the rescheduling of their tournaments, including the Champions League and Europa League.

One proposal put forward suggests that both the Champions League and Europa League are completed in a four-day mini tournament.

The decision to postpone Euro 2020 also gives domestic leagues the chance to complete their seasons which are currently on hold.

The Premier League has already been provisionally postponed until April 4, although that date is likely to be extended.
