Fans are wondering whether the Premier League would halt once again with a second nationwide lockdown in the UK.
The Premier League season of 2019/20 was put on hold because of the coronavirus as the United Kingdom initiated a full lockdown. However, there has been another lockdown imposed by Boris Johnson but it looks like the football and the leagues will continue this time around.
The United Kingdom are going into another session of lockdown as the coronavirus cases are rising higher and it looks like the UK have been hit with a second wave. However, the Premier League and the other football leagues have received a green light to continue according to Goal. Johnson himself has confirmed that none of the leagues will be put to a halt.
The whole world was hit with the coronavirus in March 2020 and all of football was suspended. However, the games in Europe resumed in June. The games were played behind locked doors as no fans were allowed to enter the stadium. To this point, the games are still being played behind closed doors while there were discussions about letting fans in, with little amounts but it does not look like that is going to happen with the rise of coronavirus again in the UK.
The Prime Minister and other British officials have confirmed with full authority, that the EPL and the other leagues will be allowed to continue. There will be no suspension, permanent or temporary this time. Premier League managers like Jurgen Klopp have provided full support to this movement stating that discontinuing the season again is not a good idea, especially for the economy. He states that, cases will come and go and that they’ve been so good at isolating whatever case does show up.
Hence, it definitely looks like the Premier League and the other leagues in the United Kingdom will continue. The second wave of coronavirus has forced the country to another state of lockdown, however, the football fans have something positive in the idea that it does not look like football will be discontinued anytime soon.
