The three UEFA phonecalls to take place today, what’s being discussed and who is taking partUEFA president Aleksander Ceferin will host a series of phonecalls today to decide what happens next in football.The Daily Mail report: “There will be three calls, including with the European Club Association, which represents 250 clubs including Premier League giants like Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal. “Another conversation will be had with 55 member associations like the FAs from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. FIFPro, the player’s union, will be on both of those calls.“Ceferin will be included on both of those calls along with UEFA general secretary Theodore Theodoridis, UEFA deputy general secretary and director of football Giorgio Marchetti, and Martin Kallen, who is CEO of UEFA Events.“There will then be a third call with the executive committee, who have to give the green light to proposals.”The first call is reportedly set to talk about the future of club football and the hope for a way for domestic leagues to keep going — along with the Champions League and Europa League.According to the Mirror, the most likely outcome will be quarter-finals and semi-finals that take place over one-leg with home and away advantage decided by the toss of a coin. The Mail state: “There could also be a mini tournament where the final is being staged, Istanbul or Gdansk. “Next season’s competition is also on the docket. They will struggle to host it without qualifiers and may face the unthinkable idea of scrapping it altogether.”The second call is when Euro 2020 is likely to be postponed by a year and the Nations League cancelled for 2021. Conference call three is when the executive committee will make the final decisions on what has been put on the table.
