The organisation has offered a set of recommendations for when leagues return to play following the Covid-19 pandemic.

In response to the coronavirus outbreak and its impact on world football, FIFA has announced that the organisation is open to “flexible” transfer window adjustments while recommending the extension of player contracts through to the end of the season.

Virtually all of sport is currently sidelined due to the outbreak of Covid-19, with leagues all over the world shutdown indefinitely as governments work to control and combat the virus.

As a result, football’s return remains up in the air as we head into what should have been a busy summer of matches and tournaments.

With the likes of the Euro 2020, the Copa America and the Olympics postponed, the focus has been shifted to the return of club football as each individual league determines how to go about finishing their domestic seasons.

That leaves the potential for football to be played through the summer or even later, which would greatly impact player contracts and transfer movement.
