Uefa has postponed its Executive Committee meeting scheduled for May 27 because of some 'open points' regarding the venues for next year's re-scheduled Euro 2020 tournament.

In a statement, European soccer's governing body said the meeting would now take place on June 17.

The Euro 2020 championship, due to be staged in 12 cities across the continent, was postponed because of the novel coronavirus pandemic that shut down soccer in March.

Uefa said the change to the meeting was caused by 'the existence of some remaining open points regarding a small number of proposed venues for the rearranged Uefa Euro 2020 next year'.

At the weekend Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin appeared to suggest the number of host cities might be reduced.

"We've had conversations with nine cities and everything is set," Ceferin said.

"With three cities, we have some issues. So we will discuss further. In principle, we will do it in 12 cities but if not, we are ready to do it in 10, nine or eight."
