UEFA have announced their commitment to complete all domestic and European club competitions by the end of the current sporting season which is due end on June 30, 2020.
This comes just hours after the Norwegian FA confirmed the governing body decided to postpone this summer’s Euro 2020 tournament by 12 months in order for European leagues to complete their seasons.
Liverpool are just six points away from holding aloft their first Premier League, or First Division title since 1990. But the Covid-19 outbreak has stopped the English top-flight until April 3, and it is likely to extend beyond that.
With the season currently suspended there has been debate as to whether or not Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions following the threat of the current campaign being voided.
UEFA, the European Club Association, European Leagues and FIFPRO Europe today signed a joint resolution on the principles of a contingency plan regarding the 2019-20 season.
The principles include details on the completion of national team and club competitions…

However, UEFA have released a statement which highlights their intentions to finish all domestic European seasons by the end of June. There are potential limitations or drops of current exclusive calendar slots, which could result in the scheduling of domestic league matches in mid-week and scheduling of UEFA club competitions matches on weekends.
The UEFA resolution added: “A working group composed of representatives from UEFA, leagues and clubs will be immediately established to examine relevant calendar matters and devise solutions allowing for the resumption and/or conclusion of the current season in a coherent manner.
This means that it is highly likley that Liverpool will be handed the opportunity to finish their season and more importantly, mathematically secure the league title.
UEFA’s decision to prioritise the current club-campaign as opposed to potentially rendering the season null is the perfect opportunity for Liverpool to finally get over the line and end the team’s 30-year title wait.
This will come as a gargantuan relief to Kopites across the world who are desperate to see Liverpool bring home the prize that is coveted more than any other.
