Coronavirus forces Premier League to suspend play

The Premier League is suspending its season until at least April 4 amid the coronavirus pandemic, the league announced Friday.

The league hopes to reschedule the affected matches. 

The league’s decision was made jointly with the English Football Association, EFL, Women’s Super League and Women’s Championship, which also suspended their seasons through at least April 3. 

The decisions comes less than 24 hours after the league announced that this weekend’s scheduled games would “go ahead as scheduled.” Since then, however, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta tested positive for coronavirus as did Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
