A UEFA Europa League match between Estonian club Nõmme Kalju and Slovenian side NŠ Mura was canceled on August 27, as players from both teams gave positive tests. The Estonian team was removed as an active outbreak on Monday, September 21, after having been noted in the Health Board's (Terviseamet) releases since the initial cancellation.

Kalju traveled to Slovenia for their "home" match and was eliminated from European competition after a 0:4 loss.
