The tournament was to take place in Lithuania from September 12 to October 4 this year. Now the final part of the World Cup has received new dates – from September 12 to October 3, 2021.
The theoretical possibility of holding this year’s World Cup remained, but it was decided to abandon this idea, as not all participants in the final part of the tournament have been determined yet. The teams will play for 11 more tickets to qualifying.
We will remind, the national team of Ukraine couldn’t make the way to the world championship. Ukrainian futsal players completed the elite round of qualifying for the World Cup, scoring only one point in three matches.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the European Football Championship and the Olympics in Tokyo were also postponed to next year.
UNIAN previously also reported on the postponement of the World Aquatics Championship.
