European football remains united in the hope of finishing the season during the summer after the postponement of Euro 2020 came at "huge cost".
Governing body UEFA made "the biggest sacrifice" to tackle the disruption to the football calendar caused by the coronavirus pandemic by agreeing to push the showpiece event back until next year.
For the first time since Euro 96 Wembley should have been hosting a major football tournament, but not now.
London was due to host seven matches including the semis and the final. But now the road to Wembley is deserted and the outlook for surrounding businesses is bleak.
On big match days more than 3,000 people drink at The Green Man at Wembley. No football means no chance the beer will be sold befoe it goes off.
The virus has left fans frustrated too but the postponement offers a chance for domestic competitions to be completed.
Next year's final will be on July 11th details are sketchy but UEFA has confirmed tickets will be rolled over or refunded in full.
