UEFA has announced the postponement of three more major finals that had been scheduled to take place during the month of May.
The Champions’ League Final, Europa League Final and Women’s Champions’ League Final have all been called off and no decision has yet been made on rearranged dates.
This was the first outcome of the deliberations of a working group established last week by UEFA as they postponed Euro 2020 to twelve months on from when it was originally scheduled.
It is difficult to make decisions on a resumption of normal activity while the crisis still continues to develop but a potential slow down of infection rates in the countries first and worst affected does hold out hope.
The FAI and the clubs of the SSE Airtricity league laid out a potential calendar stretching from mid-June to mid-December for the resumption and conclusion of domestic football here.
The Concluding rounds of the Guinness Six Nations are provisionally scheduled for October and PRO14 Rugby have laid down criteria for a resumption and conclusion of that tournament.
We have to go through the ron=unds of postponement announcements first in order to then begin planning for when these games and events can be rearranged.
The GAA is undertaking that planning process at the moment and later today, as part of our Sport for Business 4@4 content, we will put forward some possible suggestions as to how a new season might look.
