While there are now full restrictions on overseas travel for vacationing, people are still allowed to go overseas to some countries for their occupations. In addition, elite athletes are permitted to fly and compete in sport.

Therefore the Europa League is expected to continue. According to Leicestershire Live, if contests are not completed, clubs have until January 28 to rearrange. Forfeits will be imposed if both outfits refuse to play.

However, parliament is also set to discuss guidelines for the competition on Wednesday. Consequently Leicester’s match with Braga on Thursday at King Power Stadium could be under threat.
