It could be as long as August before the likes of Dundee United and Celtic find out their title fates.

UEFA have called a meeting of all 55 member associations, amidst reports that they want to finish the 2019/20 campaign in August with shortened competitions next season (The Times).

An emergency group at UEFA are currently working on a plan to restructure the football calendar left in ruin by the global health pandemic. SPFL football is currently on hold as a result, with Celtic and Dundee United in the dark over their title chances.

Billions on the line

Billions in TV money could be lost if the season is scrapped, and as a result, a conference call with all 55 national UEFA associations to discuss possible alternatives for playing rescheduled matches is due.

Cancelling the season would provide a huge financial blow to football’s governing body, with millions already lost on the postponement of Euro 2020, which will now take place in 2021.

Just recently, UEFA vice-president Michele Uva said that individual governing bodies would decide the final standings of their leagues, although playing through the remaining 2019/20 games would remove any decisions regarding that matter.
