Belgium’s Pro League have pushed back the date for a meeting to decide whether or not the 2019-20 season should be cancelled.
Last week, organisers recommended rendering the season void, with the coronavirus pandemic having seen all but a handful of sporting competitions across the world put on hold.
The unprecedented move would have seen Club Brugge declared champions and Waasland-Beveren relegated.
UEFA later insisted that any such decision was premature and that cancelling the whole campaign must be seen as “a last resort” by all member associations.
A Pro League general assembly had been called for April 15 to discuss the findings of a working group tasked with assessing the sporting and financial implications of declaring the season over.
However, a statement on Thursday confirmed the assembly has been delayed until April 24, when all Pro League clubs will be invited to attend.
“The members of the working group appointed by the board of directors are now continuing their duties,” the statement added.
