English football will take a hibernation until April 30 where it could possibly resume.
Premier league club chiefs on Thursday held a crunch meeting aided by video conference to deliberate on the fate of the widely-watched league.
“It has been decided at an emergency meeting between Premier League clubs, but the 2019/20 season will be extended indefinitely,” read a statement from the conference.
The initial plan from the Premier League, decided during their last emergency meeting on Friday, was to cancel matches until the start of April, and then continue the season as normal but the constantly-evolving coronavirus pandemic is likely to change that situation.
The meeting chaired by Premier league Chief executive Richard Masters among others things decide on
resumption of the premier league normally, which favors Liverpool and would also be fancied by many including season ticket holders and tv broadcasters.
The other alternative was to cancel the league all together and start the new season on a new slate an idea which was initially fronted by West Ham vice chairman Karren Brady.
A statement after the meeting, published by the Premier League said: “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.
