BC, Tallinn, 26.10.2020.Print version

Altogether 22 members of the Slovenian women's football team were diagnosed with coronavirus, which means that the UEFA Women's Championship qualifier match initially scheduled to take place at the A. Le Coq Arena in Tallinn on Tuesday has been cancelled, writes LETA/BNS. 

The team arrived in Tallinn for the qualifier scheduled for Oct. 27. The game has been canceled with any future decisions to be made by UEFA. The Slovenian team will return home by charter flight and is remaining in self-isolation until then.

"The Slovenian women's team was in a training camp in Maribor where, as far as we know, they were tested multiple times, the last time on October 20. The Slovenians caught a charter flight to Moscow where they played a UEFA qualifier against Russia on October 23. They arrived in Tallinn on another charter flight on October 24 where they were tested again," Mihkel Uiboleht, head of public relations at the Estonian Football Association, said.

The association will announce as soon as possible how the repurchase of tickets for the Estonia-Slovenia qualifier match will be organized.
