According to official news, UEFA announced that due to the unclear situation of the European epidemic situation and the difficulties caused by travel restrictions, the U19 European Cup in the 2019/20 season will be cancelled.
The final stage of the U19 European Youth Championship was originally to be held in Northern Ireland, but now it has to be cancelled. The U19 European Youth Championship was originally set to determine the places for the U20 World Cup next year. Due to the cancellation of the tournament, UEFA decided to allocate five places to the top five teams in the 2019/20 season.
Therefore, England, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Portugal will represent Europe in the U20 World Cup in Indonesia from May 20 to June 12.
UEFA recently introduced a new format of competition and decided to divide the European Youth League teams into three leagues with a promotion mechanism, and finally competed for eight teams to compete for the championship in the summer of 2022. This new competition system currently has to put off.
