All UEFA competitions have been halted because of the flu-like virus that has killed around 34,000 people, while this year’s European Championship has been pushed back to 2021.

“UEFA has invited the general secretaries of its 55 member associations to a video conference on Wednesday, 1 April... to discuss options identified with regards to the potential rescheduling of matches,” UEFA said.

Player transfers and contracts will also be discussed at the meeting, it added.

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said over the weekend that the current season could be lost if it is unable to re-start by the end of June, although he did not rule out extending it into the next season.
