The Covid-19 crisis, which has claimed almost two million lives globally, has drastically affected all countries, forcing local governments to impose strict lockdowns to prevent the spread of the disease.
Major sporting competitions, including UEFA Euro-2020 and the Tokyo Olympics, have been postponed due to the virus, which badly impacted all spheres of life.
Europe’s best football leagues were also forced to put their competitions on hold, creating a two-month gap in their calendars.
