UEFA Cancels 2021 Under-17 European Championships for Men and Women Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Nyon, December 18: UEFA canceled next year’s Under-17 European Championships for men and women on Friday because of the coronavirus pandemic. Both annual soccer tournaments had been scheduled for May, with Cyprus hosting the men and the Faeroe Islands making its continental hosting debut for the women.

“The current epidemiological situation in many parts of Europe (is) making it unrealistic to hold youth competitions in the first months of 2021,” UEFA said.

Concerns were cited about having teenagers travel on commercial flights and preparing players for the tournaments. Barcelona Labels Lionel Messi as the Real GOAT After He Loses Best FIFA Men’s Player Award 2020 to Robert Lewandowski, Juventus Fans Remind Them of Cristiano Ronaldo.
