English football confident of finishing the season

English football confident of finishing the season as Premier League join forces with the FA, EFL and WSL to call on players and managers to ‘set the right example’ amid backlash over social-distancing rule breaches

In a joint statement, the Football Association, Premier League, EFL and Women’s Super League said they were confident their tightened coronavirus protocols would enable them to finish the season.

The statement read: ‘Safety is a collective effort and football requires the ongoing support of clubs, managers, players and all those involved in staging matches to continue to manage the spread of infection and set the right example to the public on and off the pitch.

‘We will offer guidance, education and support as well as reviewing our practices to ensure they remain of the highest standard.

‘Our three organisations have confidence in our COVID-19 protocols and our ability to bring the season to a successful conclusion.’
