The EFL have urged supporters to play their part in supporting local communities - through the continuing coronavirus pandemic. 

Play in the Sky Bet Championship, League One and League Two has been suspended since March 14, amid the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19. 

And the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA), the EFL, Premier League and The FA have moved to reiterate that clubs and their supporters have a vital role to play in supporting the Government’s guidance and ensuring community strength and solidarity.

While there is no football, our sport can still play its part.

Clubs and supporters have responded magnificently with staff, fans and volunteers supporting those most in need in their local towns and cities.

Supporters can keep up to date with how the Premier League and EFL clubs are providing wide-ranging support for their communities, including the provision of facilities for medical use and accommodation for NHS staff.

Clubs are also supporting foodbanks, transporting medicines and food and telephoning the most vulnerable members of society. 

Many supporters’ groups across the country have also shown just how valuable they are.

We have seen official supporters’ trusts raising tens of thousands of pounds in their local communities, donating to local foodbanks, delivering care packages and helping NHS staff.

The work of clubs, staff, volunteers and supporters is making a huge difference to those in need.

The FSA, EFL, Premier League and The FA encourage all clubs and supporters’ groups to remain in contact during this difficult time and, where possible, support one another in their community efforts.

The EFL also extend their gratitude to those football supporters who are key workers, and those who have offered their support on a volunteer basis.

The club would like to join the EFL in urging fans across the country to follow the ongoing Government advice, to provide us all with the best opportunity to keep fans and communities safe.
