The current Premier League season is suspended until April 30, 2020, due to the rapid growth of the coronavirus pandemic.

‘It’s also right in terms of promotion and relegation and Champions League places.

It was earlier reported that the league officials are scheduled to meet on April 3 where they will take a possible decision on the rest of the season. It is understood that there is a possibility that the league may resume from June 1 with the matches taking place behind closed doors.
