English football extends suspension to April 30

Officials from all 20 English top-flight clubs spoke over a conference call on Thursday morning to co-ordinate a strategy for completing the fixture list in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic which has led to the suspension of almost all sport.

It has been decided that the Premier League, the EFL and women’s football will continue to be suspended until April 30 “at the earliest”.

The deadline for returning to action has also been extended indefinitely as part of an agreement with the FA.

It is understood the discussions centred very much on the here and now, although clubs were shown modelling of how the schedule could look using a variety of possible resumption dates.
