Despite a period of confinement which seems to be prolonged, the various players in European football are already considering a possible resumption date in order to close the 2019-2020 season. In particular, UEFA had planned three dates to end the current financial year: June 30, July 31 or August 31. For its part, PSG will still play eleven Ligue 1 matches, two national cup finals and a quarter-final of the Champions League. The various football bodies are therefore studying a favorable timetable for completing all of the competitions.
In an interview with Tuttosport, UEFA vice-president Michele Uva said that the European body would favor the various European championships on the European cups. “We have given priority to the European championships, while keeping a window for the European cups. All formulas are possible. We have not acted selfishly by favoring continental competitions ”, said Uva, in comments translated by RMC Sport.
In this interview, Michele Uva also explained that the financial fair play of UEFA will know some adjustments but the systems will not be frozen. “Financial Fair Play and control systems will be maintained, not frozen. They will not be canceled, even if adjustments will be possible to face the tsunami that is shaking the world and football. We will act with transparency and unity. We have made sacrifices in favor of European football, especially economic football. UEFA has reservations about being flexible and dealing with the damage caused by the Covid-19. “
