The English Premier League this morning suspended all it's fixtures after the outcome of a meeting held by the EPL shareholders. The suspension will last until the 4th of April.

The fixtures of the lower three divisions (below the Premier League) and Women’s Super League will also be affected by the suspension.

Below is a statement from the Premier League concerning the suspension:

Following a meeting of shareholders today, it was unanimously decided to suspend the Premier League with the intention of returning on 4 April, subject to medical advice and conditions at the time.

Despite the challenges, it is the Premier League’s aim to reschedule the displaced fixtures, including those played by Academy sides, when it is safe to do so.

Recall that news broke out in the early hours of Friday that Arsenal's manager, Mikel Arteta and Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi tested positive for coronavirus.

Meanwhile, Everton also made an announcement that their entire first-team squad, including the coaching staff will undergo self-isolation after a player reportedly showed symptoms that were consistent with the dreaded COVID-19.

It is no longer news that Leicester City already has three of its players undergoing self-isolation. Also, Artur Boruc, a goalkeeper of Bournemouth alongside four staff of the team are currently self-isolated.

In addition, the friendly games which the English Football Team is scheduled to play at home against Italy and Denmark later this month have been postponed.

Concerning the COVID-19 on affected EPL players, Premier League Chief Executive, Richard Masters made the following statements:

Above all, we wish Mikel Arteta and Callum Hudson-Odoi speedy recoveries, and everyone else affected by COVID-19.

In this unprecedented situation, we are working closely with our clubs, Government, The FA and EFL and can reassure everyone the health and welfare of players, staff and supporters are our priority.
