Sport throughout Europe is heavily affected by the coronavirus crisis. All kinds of sporting events, professional and amateur, have been cancelled or postponed, raising questions on how to end the respective seasons. For (elite) athletes, keeping fit is a major challenge as sporting activities in groups cannot take place and most sport facilities are closed.
The Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA), which is in charge of the implementation of the Erasmus+ sport programme, is one of the European institutions that is influenced by the corona crisis. The implementation of projects organised by EACEA are affected and flexibility is now more needed than ever.
