Games off until 4th April 10:56 - Mar 13 with 3958 viewsrichranger

The English Football League is to suspend all fixtures until 4 April, Sky News understands.

It comes as Premier League chiefs meet to discuss the top division's response to the coronavirus outbreak, as Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta and Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi were diagnosed with COVID-19.

Three Leicester City players are also being tested for COVID-19, while Everton announced on Thursday that the squad was in self-isolation after a player reported symptoms consistent with the virus.

Meanwhile, European football's governing body UEFA has announced that all Champions League and Europa League matches scheduled for next week have been postponed.

Other top-flight leagues in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal and Ireland suspended matches earlier this week as the outbreak spreads across Europe.

English football had been told to carry on as normal by the government which said the risk of catching COVID-19 in a stadium was low.


The COVID-19 pandemic has seen a number of sports tournaments and competitions put on hold around the world, including the NBA basketball season and all of the US PGA's scheduled golf tournaments for the next three weeks.

As the infection spread is likely to be much higher in a few weeks, this may make little difference and will have to postpone again.

Gutted. I wanted to enjoy the end of the season with an outside hope of reaching the playoffs with the exciting young guns in form and turning it on...but now I'll never see them play in hoops again now. Feel like a little boy denied Christmas (only a little tongue in cheek, this overreaction).

IF they restart on 4th April , and I don't think that can be guaranteed, they will have to play 9 games in 5 weeks.
Wembley will be booked for EFL playoffs and they have to fit in 2 x semi-finals before that

The chances of football resuming in early April are lower than the chances of our team making the playoffs are/were.

Suffering since 1978.
