European leagues have committed to ending all domestic seasons by June 30th if the current situation improves, according to a statement released by UEFA (BBC).

The Premier League took the decision on Friday to suspend the top flight with the intention of returning on 4 April, subject to medical advice following the coronavirus pandemic which is sweeping across the world.

The original plan was for the Premier League season to finish on Sunday 17th May with Spurs due to travel to Crystal Palace, but there are already matches which require rescheduling.

Tottenham’s home fixtures against Manchester United and West Ham were postponed this month with no future date yet confirmed.

The news follows UEFA’s decision to postpone this summer’s Euro 2020 until a year later due to COVID-19.

The tournament which was due to take place from 12 June-12 July this summer, will now run from 11 June to 11 July next year.

The statement says there may be ‘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’.

Spurs currently find themselves in eighth place in the Premier League table.

Opinion

The pandemic shows no sign of slowing down and the prospect of finishing the season by the end of June appears to be very optimistic.
