The COVID-19 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on society and industry, including club football. We are engaging constantly with governing bodies and stakeholders to make collective decisions on how to tackle the virus' impact on our game. As part of this process, we have engaged with you to understand the challenges you are facing and we want to support you in the best way we can during these difficult times. Therefore, we have put together a section of our website, developed exclusively for ECA Member Clubs, which seeks to help you navigate your way through this period, providing clear information and updates on steps being taken by stakeholders to combat the pandemic's impact on European football, as well as a space for inspiration with the sharing of some best practices examples from across the membership and beyond.


Stakeholder Updates

We have compiled all relevant updates and circular letters sent by FIFA, UEFA and other stakeholders since the pandemic took effect, as well as correspondence from ECA to member clubs.

Country Overview

In this section, you will find an overview of the return to play status in each of Europe's domestic leagues.

Questions & Answers

Following the ECA Administration's engagement with members, we have received feedback on some of the main challenges facing clubs in this period and we have sought to provide clarity and transparency in this respect by answering some of your most commonly asked questions.

Club & Industry Cases

We have put together a series of inspiring case studies from clubs, leagues and stakeholders from across the industry who are engaging in social and fan engagement related activities that may be of interest to you. 


We will keep you updated on the developments as proactively as possible via emails, but please always reach out to us if you have any questions at all.
