Euro 2020 has been postponed by one year until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic, say multiple European football associations.

Uefa, European football’s governing body, has been holding an emergency video conference involving major stakeholders on Tuesday.

The associations say it was decided the tournament will now take place from 11 June to 11 July next year.

The tournament was due to take place from 12 June-12 July this year at 12 venues across Europe.

The postponement provides a chance for European leagues that have been suspended to now be completed.

Elsewhere, the South American Football Confederation (Conmebol) says this year’s Copa America, due to take place from 12 June to 12 July, has been postponed until 2021.
