Coronavirus: What could happen if the football season is cancelled?

The message was clear from English football authorities on Friday - matches will only be resumed "when it was safe and appropriate to do so".

But what remains unclear is exactly when competitions will, if at all, restart.

Professional matches had been suspended until the beginning of May, but that date has now been pushed back indefinitely.

All fixtures in the Premier League, Football League, Women's Super League and Women's Championship, and all fixtures in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, are currently postponed.

"In this unprecedented situation, we are working closely with our clubs, Government, The FA and EFL and can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority," said Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters.

The move follows other decisions made by Football governing authorities in France, Italy, and Spain, while UEFA has agreed to delay this summer's European Championships until 2021.

In a statement to Euronews, the Premier League said the "overriding priority is to aid the health and well-being of the nation and our communities, including players, coaches, managers, club staff and supporters".

English football authorities had agreed that "difficult decisions" will have to be made to mitigate the economic impact of the suspension of football across the country.

But the leagues have reiterated their wish for "all remaining domestic league and cup matches to be played" to maintain competition integrity.

And UEFA's decision to suspend Euro 2020 for 12 months does create space in the calendar to ensure that domestic and European leagues have more chance of being completed.

The Italian football federation (FIGC) have however admitted that the Serie A season might not finish, and said that they would be discussing several alternatives if games cannot be completed.

These options include:

  • staging play-offs
  • not having a champion for 2019-20
  • declaring the current standings final

When Euronews asked the English Premier League if it was considering the options suggested by the Italian Football Federation, they directed to us to an earlier statement.

"Despite the challenges," it reads, "it is the Premier League’s aim to reschedule the displaced fixtures, including those played by Academy sides, when it is safe to do so."

Any further measures are currently a matter of speculation.
