All football matches were postponed as a result of the COVID -19 pandemic that has infected over 2.5 million and killed over 150000 people. However, after deliberation from the English Football Association, all games across the Championship, League One, and League Two will be broadcast live on television or online after the English Football League confirmed football will resume behind closed doors. Additionally, the sports betting louisiana industries and their likes too can therefore open up their wagering as before, maybe following the rules.
An open letter to fans from EFL chairman Rick Parry confirmed there is no scheduled date for the return of football across the country due to the uncertainty that follows the coronavirus crisis, but did confirm that when games eventually resume, fans will be locked out.
He said:To give you an honest assessment of the current situation; the point at which you will be able to attend games again remains unclear. Please be assured, however, that we are going to welcome you back to stadiums as soon as it is safe to do so.
Your contribution to the matchday experience and atmospheres created in stadia up and down the country is something we should never take for granted. Unfortunately, I cannot tell you today when football will resume, though whenever we do return, matches are likely to be played without crowds.
“And whilst we are unfortunately without the presence of the hundreds of thousands of supporters who pass through EFL turnstiles each week, we will endeavour to bring live football direct into your homes once it returns. Plans are continuing to be worked up for all games to be broadcast either via our broadcast partners, iFollow or equivalent Club streaming services. We will update you on this once we know when matches will recommence.”
