Premier League suspended indefinitely

The Premier League was suspended indefinitely this Friday after a meeting between the 20 clubs that comprise it.

The Premier had marked April 30 as the tentative restart date, but this was postponed through a statement that reported that "the 2019-20 season will only return when it is safe and appropriate" and only with the full support of the government council. .

"There is a combined objective that all the remaining matches of the local leagues and cup take place," said the league, as long as this "allows us to maintain the integrity of all competitions."

The teams still have nine or 10 games to go, and Liverpool -líder of the table with a 25-point advantage over his closest rival - he still requires two victories to secure what would be his first title since 1990.

In a letter signed by the Association of European Clubs and the European Leagues, UEFA urged national leagues not to abandon their tournaments.

Stopping leagues without UEFA approval could cause your teams to be unable to qualify for the Champions or Europa League.

Funds to protect teams

In a statement, the Premier also indicated that it was agreed to advance funds for 125 million pounds (150 million dollars) for the clubs of the English Football League, which includes the second to the fourth division, and the National League of the fifth division.

Also, the league will allocate 20 million pounds to the National Health Service of Great Britain and added that it has consulted its players about a salary reduction or a deferral of payments of 30%.
