Premier League season could be cancelled if clubs do not agree to play at neutral grounds


May 7, 2020

League Managers Association chief executive Richard Bevan has warned the Premier League season could be cancelled if clubs do not agree to playing at neutral grounds.

It is understood that Premier League clubs have been told the only way to complete the season is for the remaining 92 matches to be played at neutral venues as part of plans outlined in Project Restart.

The Government, if they haven’t already, will be making it clear that home matches with densely populated stadia really puts into question whether social distancing rules can be adhered to and without doubt that will be on the voting next Monday with the clubs,” he told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Bevan’s comments came as Aston Villa joined Brighton in publicly opposing the idea of completing the Premier League season at neutral venues.
