It has been a busy week for footballers.
First, the new FIFA rules for players came into effect.
Next, the Champions League came into force, but the Premier League was postponed for a few weeks due to the Ebola outbreak.
The UEFA Europa League also came into play, and the Champions league is now in the books, while the FA Cup is also in the hands of UEFA.
The Football Association also had a busy day on Tuesday, with the announcement of the results for the 2019/20 Premier League season.
First of all, it’s worth remembering that the 2019-20 Premier league season starts on Thursday morning, so the results of the previous two seasons are already in.
The first season started on February 25, and then was postponed until April 14 due to a pandemic.
Then on March 3, the FA’s Executive Committee met to discuss the season.
This means that the results from the previous season, when the FA had a chance to take the season to the next level, will not be reflected.
However, the results are reflected in the season-ticket holders’ list, which is published on Monday.
“The FA have been working with UEFA and UEFA’s Executive Committees on the issue of results from previous seasons,” said a statement on the FA website.
“It is important to stress that the FA does not want to be criticised for any of these measures, but it is important that we take this issue seriously and we must respect the process.”
The FA are also looking into the impact of the postponement of the Champions Leagues on the 2019 FA Cup.
The FA have confirmed that they are currently reviewing the situation, but there is no confirmation that the season will be delayed.
The Premier League has been postponed for several weeks, while UEFA have announced that the Champions’ League will not begin until April 8.
As usual, UEFA are the ones responsible for deciding which teams will compete in the Champions’.
So far, there have been no concrete results from UEFA’s consultation process, so there is still no date for the Premier league to begin in earnest.
With the FA taking the matter seriously, it looks like we may be looking at a return to normal football for the next few months.
