The Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina has postponed ticket sales for the Euro 2020 qualifying play-off semi-final between Bosnia and Northern Ireland on 26 March due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Bosnia confirmed its first two cases of coronavirus on Thursday, while there have been 12 confirmed cases in Northern Ireland.

"In order to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, and in accordance with the recommendations of the relevant institutions, the ticket sale is postponed for several days," the Bosnian FA said on its website 

"A new ticket sale date will be announced later."

As yet there is no indication whether or not the match will proceed as planned or if a game behind closed doors is under consideration.

The Bulgarian Football Union suspended ticket sales for the Euro 2020 qualifying play-off semi-final between Bulgaria and Hungary - also scheduled for 26 March - a day earlier. 

The Republic of Ireland will meet the winner of the Bosnia and Northern Ireland play-off, should they be able to overcome Slovakia in their game, which is also under review due to the coronavirus.

Yesterday the Slovak government ordered a 14-day ban on all cultural, sporting and other events organised by public authorities to avoid the spread of coronavirus, casting into doubt the prospect of the Republic of Ireland facing Slovakia in their Euro 2020 play-off semi-final in Bratislava in 17 days' time.
