Uefa deny receiving WHO advice to suspend football until end of 2021

 

Uefa has denied receiving a request from the World Health Organisation to suspend all football until the end of 2021 following reports that the coronavirus pandemic could see the sport in Europe suspended for more than 21 months.

 

WHO have also taken an active role in helping to reschedule the Tokyo Olympics next summer, a decision that was made by the International Olympic Committee and Tokyo 2020 organising committee based on information from the leading global health advisers, with the Games set to begin on 23 July which will include the Olympic football tournament.

 

A WHO statement added: “This is not correct. WHO never recommended that football should no longer be played until the end of 2021.”
