Government says Premier League neutral venues if fans congregate.
Nigel Huddleston MP: “We still have COVID-19, this is not life as normal. I know the vast majority of football supporters will behave… everybody knows they have a responsibility here”
Sports minister Nigel Huddleston has told Sky Sports News that should football fans congregate outside home stadiums when the Premier League returns, the Government would bring back the option of using neutral venues to complete some 2019/20 season fixtures.
“The fans, we need them to follow passionately and follow from your home. Please do so responsibly.”
“We still have COVID-19, this is not life as normal. I know the vast majority of football supporters will behave.”
“We absolutely want to make sure that [fans turning up at stadia] is avoided, and individual fans and clubs and everybody knows they have a responsibility here.”
