As per The Atheltic, FIFA will confirm an indefinite extension to this current season, to give national bodies the freedom to decide how they wish to end their campaigns.
The sport’s governing body is also set to change the dates of this summer’s transfer window in light of the decision, whilst measures will be put in place so that contracts expiring on June 30 will have the ability to be extended for a period of time.
This news, set to be confirmed by FIFA in the next 48 hours, will come as a welcome relief to many clubs up and down the country, with the likes of Leeds and West Brom looking to close out a campaign that has seen them challenge for promotion to the Premier League for the duration.
The Whites and the Baggies have been the best pair in the Championship so far, but fears of the campaign getting declared null and void were beginning to pose the question over whether they’d get the chance to finish the job.
This, providing it is confirmed which it should be, is the right call from FIFA.
The Premier League and EFL have indicated their plans to see this season out and FIFA will now lift the end date for the season away so that there is time to finish things off.
It’s great news for clubs looking to win titles this year and, really, is only the right call.
