UEFA - some national leagues could be cancelled 'in special cases'

Post by daib0 » 21 Apr 2020, 18:18

Uefa is still planning for a June restart across its leagues but says in "special cases" some could be cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
...
Earlier this month, Uefa warned leagues that ending competitions early could result in them forfeiting Champions League and Europa League places. However, the uncertainty over when football can restart has made detailed planning impossible and for the first time, Uefa has accepted completing the season in some countries may not be possible. It was not explicitly outlined to associations what "special cases" would mean. However, Uefa expects leagues to come to it with their reasons for wanting a season to be ended prematurely.

Could that be us in the UK, do you reckon? After all, we've got big size leagues ...

I'm guessing that
"the uncertainty over when football can restart has made detailed planning impossible"
definitely applies to the UK.
What will actually happen I can't even guess.
