All matches in the English Premier League will be played behind closed doors following the outbreak of the dreaded Coronavirus.
According to UK Times, matches in the English Football League will also be affected by this development.
A meeting of the Government’s Cobra committee, on Thursday, is expected to move the response to the coronavirus pandemic, from ‘contained’ to the ‘delay’ phase.
EPL in an effort to curb the spread of the virus and keep the football season running, fans will be shut out, as it is done in the Spanish La Liga and French Ligue 1.
Season-ticket holders and holders of tickets for individual games will be able to stream coverage of matches.
Broadcasters will also be able to show more than one game during the current television slots on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.
However, games will not be shown in football centres, in order to discourage the gathering of crowds in public places.
