In view of the new situation regarding the COVID-19 virus pandemic, UEFA has today decided to postpone all qualifying tournaments for the younger ages, which were to take place from 14th March to 14th April of the current year.
The decision was taken preventively, to avoid the situation of male and female players – many of them minors – being quarantined without their families, depending on the recommendations of local authorities. Our U-19 women’s team qualified for the Elite round so they will have to wait for a new date to continue qualifying for the European Championship.
UEFA also today made a call to hold a video conference on Tuesday, 17th March, with the leaderships of all 55 members associations and representatives of ECA, FIFPro and the European leagues. Further steps that European football will take in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, as well as in domestic and European club competitions, as well as UEFA EURO 2020, will be discussed.
After the matches of youth, women’s and futsal competitions were postponed, the FF BH Competition Committee, in a new telephone session held today, decided to further postpone matches of the BH Telecom Premier League and Cup of B&H.
These decisions were made in accordance with the recommendations and orders of the competent health care institutions, as well as the governmental institutions in B&H, regarding the ban on holding public meetings in order to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
