Coronavirus: English FA Extends EPL Suspension until April 30

The Football Association (FA) has confirmed that there will be no professional football in England including the Premier League, until at least April 30 as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The EPL and other English leagues fixtures were initially suspended by the English Football Association till April 3-5 due to the widespread COVID-19 which has encroached into all the systems in the globe. But this has been extended as the UK battles the pandemic, with more than 2,500 cases confirmed in the country.

The governing body released a statement on Thursday, which said: “The FA, Premier League, EFL and women’s professional game, together with the PFA and LMA, understand we are in unprecedented times and our thoughts are with everyone affected by Covid-19.

“The FA’s Rules and Regulations state that “the season shall terminate no later than June 1” and “each competition shall, within the limit laid down by The FA, determine the length of its own playing season”.

The FA says that it “remains committed” to finding a way in which to conclude the season and is open to playing up until the end of June.
