''Sporting merit'' will decide qualifiers for next season''s UEFA CL


European football's governing body met on Thursday to discuss 2020-21 continental club competitions, and says teams will be chosen on league form.


UEFA has stated that qualification for its club competitions next season must be done on "sporting merit", while reaffirming its belief that the 2019-20 season should be played to a complete finish where possible.


The football season has been postponed across the majority of Europe due to the coronavirus outbreak, with the Champions League and Europa League on hold and all major domestic leagues being suspended, or in some cases, abandoned.
