Town: EFL Guidance is Business as Usual
Wednesday, 11th Mar 2020 12:35
Town could stream matches online free of charge if they are instructed to play them behind closed doors due to the coronavirus by the EFL, however, at present the guidance is that it is business as usual.
As things stand, while games in Italy and elsewhere have been played behind closed doors, there has been no instruction to do the same in the Premier League or EFL.
“We’re taking guidance from the EFL and their instruction at the moment is that it should be business as usual," Town secretary Stuart Hayton told the club site.
“The club has held an internal meeting to discuss the way forward if the situation changes.
"We have discussed the potential to bring in a mobile sanitiser unit, as was used at Twickenham for the rugby last weekend, for the game against Portsmouth at Portman Road on 21st March.
“We've also looked at the possibility of streaming matches free of charge to supporters should we be instructed to play behind closed doors like they have been in Italy and Europe.
“Like all businesses, an internal email has been sent around with guidelines about best practice regarding hygiene and what the remote working procedure would be for each department if required."
