Zurich: In addition to the previous decisions by the FIFA Council, the Bureau of the Council has unanimously approved a set of further changes to the men’s and women’s international match calendars in response to the global disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which persists in most parts of the world.
These changes follow a thorough consultation process with the Confederations and football stakeholders. This process resulted in proposals via the FIFA-Confederations COVID-19 Working Group that maintain the previously agreed principle that a tailor-made and flexible approach between Confederations is required, reflecting the varied circumstances of the pandemic across the world. The main changes are the following:
Men’s international match calendar
Women’s international match calendar
The FIFA-Confederations COVID-19 Working Group will continue to monitor the situation in each Confederation and if required make additional proposals to the FIFA Council.
