However, the year 2020 gives us a legacy of some of the major sports that have been postponed due to the Kovid. We mention two: the traveling European Football Championship “UEFA Euro 2020” (with the same logo) scheduled for June 11 to July 11, with the inaugural Italy-Turkey match at the Olympic Stadium in Rome (near the schedule) open to the public or closed?); A few days later, from July 23 to August 8, the XXXII Olympics in Japan will always be called “Tokyo 2020”, but we still do not know whether they will be shielded, vaccinated, or shipped to athletes and allies.
