The English Premier League will remain suspended until at least April 30, the Football Association and the Premier League said it was waiving a regulation which dictates that the domestic season has to finish by June 1.
A joint statement from the Football Association, Premier League, EFL and women’s professional game bodies reiterated a commitment to resume the current season but only when “it was safe to do so”.
The Official Statement
“The FA, Premier League, EFL and women’s professional game, together with the PFA and LMA, understand we are in unprecedented times and our thoughts are with everyone affected by COVID-19,” the statement mentioned.
The FA’s rules and regulations state the season shall terminate no later than the June 1 but it was agreed this can be “extended indefinitely” for the 2019/20 campaign.
England’s football authorities will delay the start of the 2020-21 season until the last ball has been kicked in the 2019-20 campaign, with sources telling ESPN that this year’s Premier League and EFL seasons will “absolutely finish before the next one begins.”
