Former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan believes that it is highly unlikely that any Premier League matches will take place this season in front of spectators inside a stadium.
Tottenham Hotspur have not taken to the field in front of the North London faithful since the FA Cup penalty shoot out defeat to Norwich City on Wednesday, March 4th.
The coronavirus pandemic has seen the footballing calendar grind to a halt and currently there has been no confirmation when and if the current campaign can resume.
Top-flight clubs have a combined 92 matches left to play in the 2019/20 season and there is plenty still to be decided including relegation and who will qualify for the Champions League.
Jordan has claimed that when football returns whether this season or for the 2020/21 campaign, professional football could resume without supporters present in the stands for the next 12 months.
Government social distancing guidelines currently stipulate that people stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times to reduce the transmission of coronavirus.
