There is no scientific reason to suspend football in England, says responsible

The EFL, which manages the three divisions under the Premier League, was forced to postpone 19 of the 36 games scheduled for this weekend due to increased infections among players and in the country.

Only four of the ten Premier League matches scheduled for this weekend will be able to go ahead, with others being postponed just hours before kick-off.

Brentford CEO Thomas Frank called on Thursday for the Premier League matchday 18 to be postponed to halt the spread of the epidemic and allow time for the measures taken by the clubs to halt the spread of the coronavirus.

According to Rick Parry, the temporary suspension of the championship would not allow the situation to improve quickly, as the United Kingdom has registered a record number of positive cases in the last three days.

“If we believe that a postponement can help, we will, but at the moment there is no scientific evidence to indicate that this is the case,” said the head of the championship to the BBC.

“We must stick together, remain calm and continue to make balanced decisions based on the latest information available,” Parry continued.

The games are still open to the public this weekend, although they must prove that they are vaccinated or present a negative test in stadiums that exceed 10,000 seats.

Football competitions were suspended for three months in England between March and June 2020 during the first phase of the epidemic.

“There are rumors that the government could decide a confinement of two weeks after Christmas, so perhaps the decision is not ours,” said the president of the EFL.
