We have a collection of reactions to the 2020 European Championship being postponed to 2021 due to the coronavirus outbreak. The planned dates for Euro 2021 are June 11 to July 12, 2021. Euro 2021 fans can book Finland vs-Belgium Tickets on our website on exclusively discounted prices.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin
“It was important that, as the governing body of European football, UEFA led the process and made the biggest sacrifice,” Ceferin said in a statement.
“Moving EURO 2020 comes at a huge cost for UEFA but we will do our best to ensure that the vital funding for grassroots, women’s football and the development of the game in our 55 countries is not affected.”
Danish Football Association chairman Jesper Moller
“As things are now, the setup of the tournament in 2021 will be the same as the tournament in 2020,” Moller told reporters.
“Copenhagen has the opportunity to have its four matches. So if infrastructure, hotels, logistics… are in place in Copenhagen in June 2021, then Copenhagen will also have its four matches again.”
Finland captain Tim Sparv
“We’ve been looking forward to this for a long time. It would have been the first time that Finland was in a European Championship so it’s a bit sad,” Sparv told Reuters.

“But in the general perspective, in the big picture, football is a really small matter. Now it’s about life and death and trying to control the spread of the virus, so it’s a good decision.”
French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet
“The French Football Federation fully supports UEFA’s decision to postpone Euro 2020 from June 11 to July 11, 2021, and to adapt the formats for European competitions accordingly,” he said.
“The international matches planned for March, including the two matches of the French team on March 27 and 31 at the Stade de France, would therefore logically be postponed to June.”
England Football Association CEO Mark Bullingham
“We’ll be considering the implications for all England teams and our organization over the coming days, including any implications on the date of the 2021 women’s EURO which we are very proud to be hosting,” he said in a statement.
The finish of the men’s Euro 2021 tournament coincides with the women’s Euro 2021 which was to be started from July 7 to Aug. 1, 2021, in England.
Belgium manager Roberto Martinez
“Since the last World Cup, we have worked hard to prepare as best possible for Euro 2020. But it’s off because of circumstances beyond our control,” Martinez said in a video released by the Belgian FA.
“We must be united together to beat this virus. The Red Devils (Belgium) have always shown inspirational and united strength and we want to make it clear we are all standing together to beat this situation.”

European Club Association chairman Andrea Agnelli
“The focus now will be to come up with solutions to conclude the 2019-20 club season in the most practical manner and, beyond that, ensure football, like society as a whole, returns as quickly as possible to its natural form and rhythm,” Agnelli said in a statement.
Netherlands manager Ronald Koeman
“It’s a pity (that Euro 2020 has been postponed) but football is not the important thing in life right now,” Koeman told Dutch TV.
“We must prioritize what is happening now (with the coronavirus). I had anticipated it would not happen this summer.”
