The next FIFA Congress, initially due to take place on 5 June in Addis Ababa, has been postponed until 18 September due to the coronavirus outbreak, world football's governing body said on Wednesday.

A FIFA Council meeting planned for 20 March in Zurich has also been put back to an as yet unspecified date in June or July.

FIFA said the postponements were in order to enable all member associations to attend, given current "concerns over the health and well-being of participants, as well as travel restrictions in many countries."
