Premier League continues playing despite new nationwide lockdown

Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, addressed the nation at 8 pm on Monday evening and placed the country into its third national lockdown.

As far as supporters were concerned thoughts would’ve immediately turned to football, but thankfully the Premier League and English Football League fixtures will still go ahead as planned, rather than taking a break for any period of time.

This weekend’s FA Cup ties will also be exempt and will be played, confirmed by the Daily Mirror.

The outlook isn’t so good for grassroots sport, however.

Until further notice, all sport will be stopped and even the academies at the professional club will not be able to fulfill their fixtures.

February half-term would appear to be the initial date when things will be reviewed, however, there’s no guarantee that the status quo will change by then.

In the meantime, players, managers, and supporters of elite-level clubs can at least look forward to an uninterrupted calendar.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
