The EFL admits ‘there are no quick answers’ to resolving how the coronavirus has impacted on the game.

The league has postponed games until at least April 30, but could push that back as early as this week with further meetings planned.

Speculation has been rife about what course of action the league will take, but the EFL have continued to state their intention to finish the current season, when possible, and said last month it was ‘a time for cool heads and not speculation’.

Plans for games behind closed doors, finishing the season in the summer months, or voiding it completely have all been talking points discussed.

However, the EFL says a decision will be taken ‘when practically possible’ and has urged fans of its member clubs to keep following the necessary Government advice.

A statement read: “Amid the current uncertainty, supporters will understandably have a number of questions relating to the season and the clubs they follow, and there are no quick answers to how and when we will return to what used to be our football normality.

“The Football Supporters’ Association (FSA), the EFL, Premier League and The FA want to reiterate that clubs and their supporters have a vital role to play in supporting the Government’s guidance and ensuring community strength and solidarity.

“While there is no football, our sport can still play its part.

“Clubs and supporters have responded magnificently with staff, fans and volunteers supporting those most in need in their local towns and cities.

“Fans can keep up to date with how the Premier League and EFL clubs are providing wide-ranging support for their communities, including the provision of facilities for medical use and accommodation for NHS staff.

“Clubs are also supporting foodbanks, transporting medicines and food and telephoning the most vulnerable members of society. Many supporters’ groups across the country have also shown just how valuable they are.

“We have seen official supporters’ trusts raising tens of thousands of pounds in their local communities, donating to local foodbanks, delivering care packages and helping NHS staff. The work of clubs, staff, volunteers and fans is making a difference to those in need.”

The EFL say decisions on the game will be taken in due course and thanked fans for their ‘continued patience’.

“We urge fans across the country to follow the ongoing Government advice, to provide us all with the best opportunity to keep fans and communities safe,” the statement continued.

“It is also important to note that any official communications will come from the Government and football authorities themselves.

“As the situation is regularly changing, the Premier League, EFL and The FA will continue to consult the FSA and keep supporters updated on the progress made as soon as is practically possible.”
