Following a meeting between European soccer's governing body, its 55 member associations, the board of the European Club Association and the board of the European Leagues, the decision was made to suspend the tournament to allow Europe's domestic leagues more time to complete their seasons.
"We all know that this terrible virus that is all across Europe (has) made football and all life in Europe quite impossible," Ceferin said.
"We knew we have to stop the competitions. We think that postponing the Euros is the only chance to get a chance to the national leagues and to all the club competitions to finish their competitions.
"But also that is not sure for now, but we should now think about the health, the fans of the players and the players.
"And, of course, we have to think about football as a whole, the whole ecosystem of football.
"That's why we have decided today that we postpone the Euros, and we have (one) hundred per cent full support of all 55 national associations, European leagues, European Club Association and FIFPro."
