UEFA allows season abandonment in certain cases
About three weeks ago UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin threatened Belgium with exclusion from European club competitions. Europe’s top clubs no longer need to fear this scenario if the season is abandoned in their leagues. The Executive Committee of the European Football Union decided at a video conference on Thursday that in the event of an early end to the season on a “transparent and objective” basis, the participants would be nominated. In particular, the results achieved by the time the season is abandoned should be used to decide whether to participate. If teams have played different numbers of matches, the decision could be based on an average of points.
