World football’s governing body FIFA look set to step in to help clubs out across the world who have been financially impacted by the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
Football has been hit extremely hard by the pandemic with football forced to stop in almost every corner of the world for safety reasons. With no football taking place clubs are losing money as are leagues and federations and it remains unclear if football will return at all this season given the situation.
The report explains that FIFA is ready to share a sum of €1 billion amongst their federations and it is understood that Juventus and the European Club Association president Andrea Agnelli’s letter to FIFA president Gianni Infantino was decisive in FIFA considering this action.
