The Women’s Euro 2021 Finals are expected to be pushed back to 2022 after a UEFA Executive Committee meeting later today.
Sources in UEFA are reported to be looking at a similar full shift of games and dates as has taken place with Euro 2020, effectively putting the tournament on pause for a year.
The Republic of Ireland Women’s team are in a strong position to either qualify directly for their first Championship finals or at worst to go into a playoff but with all games currently suspended, this will give some degree of certainty.
The Championships have been effectively squeezed between the men’s finals and the Olympic Games both being rescheduled.
A change in dates will at least give it the exposure it deserves with the Men’s FIFA World Cup not taking place until the Winter.
Additional information from UEFA in relation to club competitions is also expected later today and we will carry the news as it emerges later today on Sport for Business.
