The World Health Organisation has reportedly called for all football to be suspended until the end of next season - 2021, Fox Sports reports citing Italy's La Republica.
They are prepared to go extreme lengths to ensure that there is not a second wave of coronavirus. The WHO put forward the idea during a conference call with UEFA.
WHO are said to be considering all possible scenarios, but are concerned about causing a second wave of the pandemic.
The lengthy suspension could plunge a huge number of clubs into financial instability due to the lack of matchday income.
As we reported earlier, UEFA will meet with its 55 federations on Tuesday, April 28, to discuss the Champions League and European leagues resuming once countries have the coronavirus pandemic under control.
According to the Gulf News, all 55 member associations took part in a video conference with Uefa officials on Tuesday, April 21, and while no decisions on future planning are expected until Thursday’s Executive Committee meeting, there was no sign of a switch from the policy to aim to finish the current season.
