Premier League clubs to play their last matches at the neutral grounds behind closed doors in order to complete the league amidst Coronavirus.
The Premier League is in a huge dilemma how to end the Premier League, as the coronavirus outbreak has suspended the league till April 3d, and could further extend the suspension while the virus is not slowing down.
In the latest speculation by the Sun, the Premier League is set to host the remaining games behind the closed doors, and it will be held on the neutral grounds.
It is being believed that neutral grounds will prevent fans to group outside the stadiums, as it was done during the closed-door Champions League game between PSG and Borussia Dortmund.
The report further states, two or three grounds hosting the games, ‘most likely’ in the Midlands. the grounds could even stage ‘more than one game a day’ with teams playing ‘every three days’ as Premier League clubs try and complete their set of fixtures.
Moreover, It would also keep down the number of police and medical staff needed. As of now, 9 Premier League game-weeks are yet to be played, (10 for Manchester City, Aston Villa, Sheffield United and Arsenal).
Moreover, this will also prevent any losses in the TV deals done with the Skysports and other broadcasters throughout the world. While looking at the potential postponements ahead.
The UEFA even shifted EURO 2020 to 2021, considering the domestic seasons have to be completed before. Any kind of cancellation has been objected by several parties and further postponement seems to be the only way out of this trouble.
But with this, the English FA also needs to deal with the FA Cup ties which are remaining in the season, plus adding the Champions League and Europe League fixtures between all of it.
