Rochdale Chief Executive: EFL Set to Confirm September Season Start
Friday, 24th Jul 2020 13:18

Rochdale chief executive David Bottomley says he believes the EFL will confirm later today that the 2020/21 season will begin on Saturday 12th September with games initially played behind closed doors.

In a lengthy statement on the Dale website, Bottomley said: “I can also make the comment that I believe within a few hours of you reading this, the EFL will have announced that our season will recommence on Saturday 12th September.

“Initially, it will be for three weeks behind closed doors and then from 1st October with crowds present.”

The EFL is holding a delayed meeting today where it had been anticipated that September 12th would be rubber-stamped for the beginning of the new season.

Town started pre-season training at Playford Road on Wednesday working towards a September 12th start.

Last week, prime minister Boris Johnson said he hoped fans would be able to return to stadia in October.

If they can play the new season behind closed doors for 3 weeks then why couldn't the old season be finished behind closed doors ??just proves these teams CAN do it if they want to but everyone had their own agenda

That sounds ok Pete but dont think too many clubs could afford the lump of games for last plus 3 more this . Last thing we want is clubs going to the wall !

Pencilpete. It is also about financial plans and not all about their own agenda. Not sure you realise how much money is involved in running a football club.
