UEFA are still urging patience in the hope European leagues can complete their domestic seasons in July and August.
UEFA are currently working on scenarios involving completing the season in July and August, according to their most recent statement. They’re arguing it requires “a joint management of calendars” across the leagues.
The plan is for the calendar working group to come to a conclusion as soon as possible, and ideally by mid-May. They call cancelling the season a “last resort” and suggest any leagues jumping the gun and voiding the season early may miss out on European competition next year.
The Premier League certainly must align with whatever UEFA plan to do. There’s no point completing the season in September if the Champions League starts up in August and we miss out. Similarly, we can’t void the season if every other league postpones and completes it.
You’d think UEFA will give up if the situation drags on too long though. They need to complete another season before the Euros next summer, so the 2020/21 campaign can’t start too late. Not to mention the rushed transfer window between the two seasons.
