Football Is Set To Return To TV But This Is What Will Happen

The European Football Association, the body that represents Europe's biggest league, says football will "undoubtedly" come back behind closed doors, but it's "impossible" to know when it will happen.

Alberto Colombo, Deputy Secretary General of the European Championships, said the suspension of the season was a "huge crisis" due to the coronary pandemic.

He said that the 'vast majority' of trade unionists, including the Premier League and the English Football League, would have the priority of returning to work.

But he admitted that a small number of countries, including Belgium, are now considering canceling their campaigns.

Football has been suspended indefinitely in most parts of Europe due to the continued distribution of Covid-19.

Premier League clubs will meet on Friday to discuss the situation, but it is unlikely that any season will resume for the season, which has played nine more rounds.

Last week, hopes were raised when German clubs became the first in Europe to return to training, though with preventative measures, in discussing their resumption in May.

But Colombo insists on caution and adds:

'The priority so far has been to concentrate on creating conditions so that we can compete again in the summer if we can.

'You have to resume training and develop your own protocols. There is no doubt it will be behind closed doors, so competition organizers need to develop medical protocols, training protocols and matching protocols. '

But of course, it is impossible to answer the question, "When do we return to play?" "Nobody has these answers.

"In the end, we all know that state governments are responsible for lifting the various restrictions that apply to sports."
