FIFA postpones all international fixtures scheduled for June
Following the first meeting of the FIFA coronavirus working group, all international football matches scheduled for June were postponed Friday.
It was also agreed to hold talks with confederations to prepare a revamped schedule for the shelved 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
“The FIFA-Confederations working group… has unanimously approved a series of recommendations following its first meeting, which was organised via conference call today,” said a FIFA statement.
The group had also agreed to postpone all scheduled women’s internationals in June.
After the decision to postpone the Tokyo Olympics by a year, the FIFA committee suggested retaining players born on or after January 1, 1997 and three additional players in the age eligibility clause.
“The FIFA-Confederations working group will continue to hold discussions on a regular basis as the situation evolves,” added the statement.
