12 March: UEFA calls European football stakeholders meeting
In light of the ongoing developments in the spread of COVID-19 across Europe and the changing analysis of the World Health Organisation, UEFA has invited representatives of its 55 member associations, together with the boards of the European Club Association and the European Leagues and a representative of FIFPro, to attend meetings by video conference on Tuesday 17 March to discuss European football’s response to the outbreak.

12 March: elite round mini-tournaments of U17 & WU17, U19 and WU19 EUROs cancelled
In light of developments due to the spread of COVID-19 in Europe and the related travelling restrictions imposed by governments, all elite round mini-tournaments of the U17 and women’s U17, U19 and women’s U19 European Championships, due to take place between 14 March and 14 April, are postponed.
This is a general precautionary measure, taken to avoid the possibility of players – many of whom would be minors – being stranded away from their families in the event of host governments declaring lockdowns or quarantines.
Further information about the rescheduling of these competitions will be given in due course, after a thorough assessment of options.
