This is when UEFA want the Premier League and EFL to complete the season by following their meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

UEFA have told their 55 member nations that they are hoping to complete all club fixtures left to play in the 2019-20 season before June 30, after confirming the postponement of Euro 2020 by a year.

The decision will come as good news for the likes of Coventry, Leeds, West Brom, Crewe, Swindon and Plymouth in their hopes to win promotion this term.

For majority of clubs, there are nine games left to play until the league season is concluded and, without Euro 2020, squads can remain at full strength throughout the summer with plenty of time to complete their fixtures.

On club competitions, UEFA have said the following:

– A commitment to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of the current sporting season, i.e. 30 June 2020 at the latest, should the situation improve and resuming playing be appropriate and prudent enough.

– Possible limitations or drops of current exclusive calendar slots, potentially resulting in the scheduling of domestic league matches in mid-week and scheduling of UEFA club competitions matches on weekends.

– Possible adaptations of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League qualifying rounds in case of late completion of the 2019/20 sporting season, i.e. after 30 June 2020.

It is understood that members from the top six EFL clubs met on Monday and were unanimous in their desire to see the season played out before the 2020-21 campaign can begin – and reports have now suggested that the rest of the division has joined them in their stand.

Meanwhile on the Premier League, the UEFA president has set the record straight on claims Liverpool could be handed the title amid the coronavirus pandemic.

He said: “I’ve saw and heard some again fake news that Uefa will advise leagues to finish the championships now and decide that the winners are the ones who are number one now.

“I can say that it’s not true. Our goal is to finish the leagues and we didn’t recommend anything like that to any association or any league.”
