The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) have postponed Euro 2020 until the summer of 2021 to allow European leagues to complete their seasons amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Norwegian FA confirmed the news on their social media accounts as they say the tournament which was to be held across 12 European cities and was scheduled to begin on June 12, will now be played between June 11 and July 11, 2021.
“Uefa has decided that the Euros should be postponed until 2021. It will be played from 11 June to 11 July next year.”

The decision comes after UEFA held conference calls with its 55 member associations, the board of the European Club Association and the board of the European Leagues.
The postponement provides a chance for European leagues that have been suspended to now be completed.
