UEFA has responded to recent rumors and rejected the reports according to which WHO wanted an 18-month suspension.
Foreign media representatives reported that the World Health Organization was wary of the second wave of coronavirus. That is why they decided to apply to UEFA. According to that all international tournaments would be delayed until the end of next year.
A spokesman for UEFA responded to the report, saying no such incident had taken place. WHO did not make such a request to them, and false news was spread in the media about this issue.
“The media reports that the World Health Organization (WHO) has asked UEFA to suspend football tournaments until the end of 2021 are untrue.
We have not received such a recommendation from WHO. Many things are not certain yet, and the public often hears misinformation from each other, “said a spokesman for UEFA.
UEFA are ready to hold matches without spectators
According to UEFA President Alexander Ceferin, they are ready to hold the matches behind closed doors if the current difficult situation does not prevent them from doing so.
We would like to remind you that UEFA held a video conference with the participation of all 55 members of the association yesterday. At the conference, the governing body of European football introduced the representatives of the federations to the alternative versions of the calendar of team matches and club championships.
UEFA will make a decision on regarding the team games and the eight playoff matches. So, they will probably hold all the matches in the fall. Recommendations for the completion of national championships were also issued. UEFA will hold a meeting of the Executive Committee on Thursday.
