Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2021 play off semi-final could be put back to September

The fixture between the Boys in Green and Slovakia is currently scheduled for early June in Bratislava

UEFA are to hold a conference call tomorrow where it’s likely that the Republic of Ireland’s Euro 2021 play off semi-final will be put back until September or October due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The fixture between the Boys in Green and Slovakia is currently scheduled for early June in Bratislava.

It’s reported that the Premier League are planning to resume the season behind closed doors in May, in order to finish the season by July, if they get the go-ahead from the UK Government.

The Premier League clubs will convene remotely on Friday.

Europe’s clubs are determined to finish their seasons in order not to trigger huge financial rebates to broadcasters.
