The UEFA Executive Committee has today announced the resumption of its club and international competitions after the postponements caused by COVID-19.

The October and November men’s international fixture dates will now feature triple-headers instead of double-headers, allowing the postponed European Qualifiers Play-Offs to be rescheduled at the beginning of the respective windows, on 8 October and 12 November.

Scotland’s play-off against Israel, originally due to be played at Hampden Park in March, will now take place on 8 October.

Steve Clarke’s side will play their first double header of 2020 in the Nations League in September as scheduled, against Israel at home on 4 September and away to Czech Republic on 7 September.

The October play-off semi-final will be followed by Nations League fixtures against Slovakia and Czech Republic, with a potential play-off final on 12 November followed by two away games against Slovakia and Israel.
