The Premier League season has been suspended indefinitely as the country’s sporting bodies continue to come to terms with the coronavirus pandemic.
At a meeting of Premier League shareholders on Friday, it was agreed that no date would be given for a potential restart – although a determination to play all competitions through to their end point was restated.

The restart date is under constant review with all stakeholders, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic develops and we work together through this very challenging time.
“With this, there is a combined objective for all remaining domestic league and cup matches to be played, enabling us to maintain the integrity of each competition.”
