It has now been officially announced that the Premier League is suspended until April 3 due to the spread of the coronavirus across the UK and the wider world (BBC).
As the government look to avoid large congregations of people, sporting matches are, of course, seen as high-risk events.
Reports claim that April 3 only represents the earliest possible date that the Premier League will resume, meaning that the suspension could surpass that.
Clubs have also been advised to suspend any non-essential visits involving players and fans.
This news comes after Mikel Arteta tested positive for coronavirus, as well as Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester, Bournemouth, Man City, Juventus, and Real Madrid all having players or staff in self-isolation (BBC).
Football London have taken a look at the Tottenham ticket terms and conditions, just in case any matches are cancelled or played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus, rather than suspended and rescheduled.
They claim that Tottenham make no reference to matches being played behind closed doors, but do say this: “In the event of a match being abandoned or postponed, tickets purchased for the original fixture will remain valid for the re-arranged date. It is the responsibility of the ticket holder to ascertain the new date and kick-off time of all Matches.”
