The 2019/20 Premier League campaign is postponed until no earlier than April 30 due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. In a statement, the league said it was committed to “finding ways of resuming the 2019/20 football season” when it is “safe and possible to do so”.
UEFA’s decision to postpone Euro 2020 has created space in the calendar to complete domestic leagues and cup competitions this summer.
The Premier League added in their statement: “The progress of COVID-19 remains unclear and we can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority.
“We will continue to follow Government advice and work collaboratively to keep the situation under review and explore all options available to find ways of resuming the season when the conditions allow.
“We would all like to re-emphasise that our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19.”
