The EFL, Premier League, FA and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have today collectively agreed to postpone all football competitions until it is safe to resume.
The decision comes as a result on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Football is committed in supporting the government’s efforts in tackling the COVID-19 outbreak and the staging of football matches in this country, though this is clearly something which simply cannot happen at this time.
The situation will be kept under constant review with matches only returning at an appropriate point and based on the latest guidance provided by the relevant government departments and health authorities.
The EFL also notes and appreciates the decision taken today by the Premier League, in respect of the short-term financial relief it is to provide EFL clubs with - through the advancement of solidarity payments, parachute payments and Academy Grants.
These actions will have a positive impact on individual clubs across our three divisions at a difficult and uncertain time.
The thoughts of everyone associated with the EFL and its member clubs are with anyone currently affected by coronavirus.
