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).
UEFA has invited the General Secretaries of its 55 associations to a video-conference on Wednesday to share an update on the progress made by the two working groups created two weeks ago and to discuss options with the potential rescheduling of matches.

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.
