Uefa suspend European competition until further notice

All Champions League and Europa League matches have been suspended "until further notice" by Uefa because of the global coronavirus pandemic, reports BBC Sport.

All national team games in June have also been postponed, including play-off matches for Euro 2020 - already postponed to 2021 - and qualifying matches for the Women's Euro 2021.

The European governing body's 55 member associations met on Wednesday.

The Premier League is suspended until at least 30 April.

Premier League clubs Manchester City and Chelsea are both still in the Champions League, while Manchester United, Wolves and Scottish Premiership side Rangers are all in the Europa League.

The finals of the Champions League, Europa League and Women's Champions League, all of which were scheduled for May, had already been postponed.
