The world of sport has been rocked by the pandemic and it's seen leagues postponed and even Euro 2020 pushed back a year.
But UEFA confused fans by initially claiming the tournament would still be called Euro 2020 even though it was taking place in 2021.
However the governing body took to Twitter on Friday and admitted they had made a mistake.
With apologies for the earlier error, to be clear no decision has yet been made on the name of the rearranged EURO to be held in 2021.- UEFA (@UEFA) March 20, 2020
The earlier tweet was sent by mistake.
The decision to move the Euros, means that the Women's Euroswill move to summer 2022, presumably no name had been decided for that either.
That summer is free of international tournaments as the World Cup in Qatar won't be played until the winter.
