Posted on 13th March 2020
It was announced this morning that all Premier League and EFL games have been suspended until April 3rd due to the Coronavirus now impacting a number of English clubs. The FA has also suspended the Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship.
These announcements follow on from UEFA suspending all Champions League and Europa League fixtures earlier this morning.
FSA chief executive Kevin Miles said:
“Matchdays are a central part of a supporter’s life but this is an unprecedented public health emergency and public safety has to come first.
“The decision to suspend fixtures until April reflects the seriousness of the situation. Fans should heed the advice of health experts.
“As a supporters’ organisation we exist to protect the interests of football fans – and our top priority at this moment is the health and safety of fans.
“Match-goers will have many other questions and we will seek to provide information and advice as the situation develops.”
