All games in the English Premier League, EFL, FA Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship are postponed due to COVID-19.
The announcement comes on the same day UEFA announced that all Champions League and Europa League matches next week have been postponed. In addition to the Premier League, all other top level English fixtures have also been cancelled.
The United Kingdom has 593 cases of the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University data, and eight people have died.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a change of strategy to tackle the coronavirus outbreak on Thursday, moving to delay the spread of the virus rather than containing it.
The announcement comes as numerous sports fixtures around the world are being cancelled over the now-pandemic.
In the U.S., the NBA and NHL have both suspended their seasons, while across Europe football leagues have been suspended in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Ireland.
The Premier League said play will start on 4 April subject to “conditions at the time,” but resuming on the date is privately deemed as “almost impossible.”
