FSA statement: Restarting the football season

The BBC reports that meetings between politicians and league officials will take place this week in a bid to restart the Premier League and EFL. 

Malcolm Clarke, chair of the Football Supporters’ Association, said:

“Fans of all sports are missing their regular fix, none more so than football supporters.

“The Government will have the final say on whether the risk can be managed safely, which is only correct. This isn’t a decision solely for football.

“Health comes first, and we’re sure there will still be unforeseen challenges, but we hope this is a positive step on the long road back to normality.”

In the coming weeks the FSA hopes to publish a series of more detailed features looking at the different scenarios which could happen and the knock-on effects for supporters and clubs. Watch this space.
