UEFA has reportedly postponed its club competitions until July/August due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Football across Europe remains suspended as countries battle the Covid-19 pandemic across the continent.
In England, 381 people died from Covid-19 in the UK on Tuesday, bringing the total to 1,789, while thousands more are currently battling the virus.
A conference between Europe’s 55 national football associations along with UEFA took place on Wednesday, and it is believed that the governing body has moved the restart date for the Champions League and Europa League to July/August.

All international matches in June will also be suspended and will probably not be played until the autumn, according to ZDF Sport.
Reports yesterday claimed several senior football executives were talking about June being an optimistic time to restart the season, but it now appears that move has been pushed back even further.
The move is likely to cause havoc to the football season calendar, as the new campaign is due to start in August, however it appears that all involved in the game are keen to finish this season before even considering starting a new one.
UEFA confirmed last month that it had taken the decision to postpone the men’s and women’s Champions League finals and the Europa League final.
Istanbul was set to host the men’s Champions League showpiece on May 30, while the Europa League final was due to take place on May 27 at Gdansk, but all three matches will now be rescheduled with new dates yet to be announced.
