⚽️😷 English FA confident the season will finish amid Covid-19 crisis

The English Premier League has encouraged clubs to continue following Covid-19 safety protocols.

Following an increasing number of positive Covid-19 cases and postponed matches, in an already tight schedule, the FA believes the season can be completed if the guidelines are followed.

“English football authorities are "confident" the 2020-21 season can be completed as scheduled if coronavirus protocols are followed with "full compliance"’ Sky reported.

"The Football Association, Premier League, EFL and Barclays Women's Super League have this week introduced enhanced COVID-19 measures and stressed their importance to everyone in the game," the statement said.

"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,” added the note.
