The season in the Premier League can finish the game without spectators and in a neutral field.

Due to the coronavirus, the remaining matches in the English Premier League can be played in the empty stands and in a neutral field. Meanwhile, they are actively looking for opportunities to bring the season to the end in the lower British divisions. This is due to the fact that some teams face bankruptcy if the quarantine is extended.

The epidemic of the Chinese coronavirus COVID-2019 has virtually paralyzed the sports life of the whole world. And not only. Firstly, the virus left fans without matches. Secondly, he deprived athletes and club employees of the opportunity to carry out their work.
Since March 16, all European football has finally stopped. At least until the situation with the spread of infection is taken under control. The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) had to postpone the European Championship 2020 for a year. And this decision was supported by clubs and leagues, which are extremely important to finish their domestic season.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”12211″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

The situation is especially acute in Foggy Albion, where the largest number of matches has not been played – 92.

According to The Sun, the bosses of the Premier League are actively looking for the possibility of holding the remaining games in the current circumstances. The source writes that one of the options may be to finish the championship in closed stands and in a neutral field. This scheme assumes that all matches will take place, for example, in the Midlands, Birmingham. Several meetings can be played on one day, and teams will play every three days. Spectators will be strictly prohibited from entering not only the stadium, but also into the arena.

The advantage of the idea is that these actions will minimize the number of medical personnel and police in the stadiums, as well as help to avoid the situation that occurred in the Champions League match between Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund Borussia, when fans, despite the ban on attending in the stands in connection with the threat of coronavirus, the crowd gathered near the Park de Prance.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

The lower British Divisions are determined to finish the season. Where there are special reasons for this.

According to the Daily Mail, the other day the leaders of the Championship clubs (the second most important league in England) held an emergency meeting by phone. At which the majority spoke in favor of the remaining tours being held at all costs.
Teams are ready to take drastic measures. Also play without spectators, if required. In this case, for season ticket holders free access to a special platform will be provided. To watch matches online. Broadcasts of individual games can be purchased by those who do not have a subscription.[/vc_column_text][vc_gallery interval=”3″ images=”12212″ img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]

This means that insurance companies have legitimate reasons not to compensate the teams for a part of the loss of income from canceled matches.

Another thing is that even if insurers agree to pay, they will not cover 50% of the loss.
That is why the clubs of England – from the Premier League to the National League – are so desperate to find ways to play out the season.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator color=”green” style=”shadow” border_width=”10″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
