It’s been a very frustrating time for sports fans of late. With the ongoing coronavirus problem, most of the sporting world has been put on hold.
The issue has affected all the major competitions, including the Premier League, Six Nations and The Masters among countless others.
A highly-anticipated summer of sport is also feeling the pressure. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics could be postponed, while Euro 2020 is also under threat from Covid-19.
Both the countries of Italy and Spain are now in total lockdown in a bid to limit the spread of the disease.
Will the Premier League be void
In terms of football alone, the Italian league has, therefore, undoubtedly suffered most. Several players from the likes of Sampdoria, Fiorentina and Juventus have tested positive for the virus, with the Serie A the first league to suspend all action until at least early April.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has also tested positive for the disease. And that forced the Premier League to take immediate action and postpone the matches.
And other top-flight leagues across Europe are now in the same position. The Bundesliga, La Liga and Ligue 1 are also facing time off.
And that has caused UEFA to consider immediate action. The organisation will meet on Tuesday with all 55 member associations via video call in order to come to a resolution for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign.
When will the Premier League resume
Several outcomes are possible, including finishing the season in the summer, or simply declaring the season null and void.
West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has perhaps been the most prominent figure to suggest the latter. But she has come under immediate fire for her comments.
Many figures in the game disagree with her suggested outcome, and want to see out the season by any means possible.
However, many bookmakers seemingly share Brady’s perspective.
The Premier League is odds on to be declared null and void due to the pandemic.
Playing matches behind closed doors has already been under consideration across Europe this season, but that outcome has yet to reach elite English football.
Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has stated that such a situation would be unfortunate for the fans of his club, who would miss out on an inaugural Premier League title for the Reds.
But the future of the competition remains up in the air. The Premier League has already cancelled its inaugural Hall of Fame ceremony due to the outbreak.
Many players, managers and fans will find out the fate of the respective leagues at Tuesday’s meeting. It is an unprecedented time for European football. But the situation will require a fair and objective resolution as soon as possible.
