UEFA set to meet on Wednesday to discuss ravaged football fixture calendar 

UEFA is set to hold a videoconference on Wednesday 1st April in order to discuss the European football's path following the suspension of football activity due to coronavirus pandemic. 

The governing body has invited the leaders of its 55 national member associations to a video conference starting at 1:00 PM EAT. The main agenda for the meeting will be for the federation to discuss the potential rescheduling of matches postponed. 

An update will be shared on the progress made by the two working groups that were created two weeks ago in response to the crisis caused by the spread of the coronavirus. 

"The meeting will look at developments across all UEFA national team and club competitions, as well as discussing progress at FIFA and European level on matters such as player contracts and the transfer system," a statement from UEFA read.

According to UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, any firm forward planning is almost impossible with the current uncertain outlook. 

"There is a plan A, B and C. We can start in May, in June or the end of June. If we can't do it on any of those three dates then the season probably would be lost," he told Italian media outlet La Repubblica over the weekend. 

"There is also the possibility to finish the season at the start of next season, with next season starting a little late. It would have to work with respect to the players and the signing periods."
