UEFA has suspended criteria regarding club licensing applications “until further notice” due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Following a meeting between the 55 member associations on Wednesday, the governing body took the decision to put back any licensing and financial fair play information as concerns grow surrounding the virus.

A statement from UEFA, said: “The Executive Committee reiterated its full commitment to club licensing and financial fair play and agreed that the current exceptional circumstances necessitate some specific interventions to facilitate the work of member associations and clubs.

“It supports the proposal to give member associations more time to complete the club licensing process until the admission process for next season’s UEFA club competitions has been redefined.

“As a result of the increasing uncertainty generated by the ongoing extraordinary events, the Executive Committee also decided to suspend the club licensing provisions that relate to the preparation and assessment of clubs’ future financial information.”

This decision applies exclusively for participation in the UEFA club competitions in 2020/21, with nothing yet announced regarding domestic licence applications by the Football Association of Wales.

UEFA also confirmed the suspension of all Champions League and Europa League matches, in addition to all national team matches for June.

This includes playoff matches for Euro 2020 and qualifying matches for the Women's Euro 2021.

The English National League also cancelled their season this week due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with plenty of questions still to be answered regarding the Welsh pyramid campaign and its ability to come to a successful conclusion across all level.
