The decision to suspend EURO 202 comes after UEFA held conference calls with its 55 member associations, the board of the European Club Association and the board of the European Leagues. Domestic competitions across Europe were due to be finished before Euro 2020, which was to be held in 12 different cities, began on June 12.

The cancelation brings up Financial penalties, logistical challenges and fixture congestion that is to be considered another day. leagues across the continent have been halted in response to the coronavirus outbreak, which has seen more than 169,000 people become infected around the world.
The sticking point here is that smaller nations wanted to keep the Euros but also the Nations League as the tournaments are a big earner for them.
