UEFA says let’s ‘not talk about dark scenarios’ about Euro 2020 and coronavirus. Aleksander Ceferin, the President of European football’s governing body UEFA, says he is confident that Euro 2020 will go ahead as planned this summer.
There have been ongoing concerns that the tournament, which is Europe’s flagship international competition, could be either canceled or postponed due to the spread of novel coronavirus, which has infected more than 90,000 people across 73 countries and territories as of Monday evening.
“Let’s be optimistic and not talk about dark scenarios,” Ceferin said at a media conference in Amsterdam following the conclusion of UEFA’s 44th Congress Meeting.
“You don’t know how many concerns we have when we organize a big competition … we have security concerns, we have political instability concerns and one of those concerns is the virus. We are dealing with it and we are confident that we can deal with it.”
Ceferin added that UEFA is in constant close contact with the World Health Organization (WHO) and European governments on public health advice.
