There is a plan to play Premier League games behind closed doors In order to combat the spread of coronavirus.

According to 90 Min, the league and FA already are believed to have held talks over possible implications if government public health advice bans large gatherings.

The UK government has stressed that the virus is a ‘problem’ that is ‘likely to become more significant’ with as the number of confirmed cases has risen to 39 on Monday.

Citing an example of this new development that was about to be instituted, last week, Inter played a Europa League match against Ludogorets Razgrad behind closed doors at San Siro.

Currently, Italy has so far been the worst affected country in Europe and had already taken preventative measures by postponing a number of other domestic games.

Similar measures might be considered If the virus continues to spread in the UK.

So far, Reports from Daily Mail disclosed that the Premier League and FA have so far discussed how games could be held without fans in stadiums.

On cancellation of games, one major of factor has been put into consideration; which is financial loss. But in all, continuing to play behind closed doors still remains the preferable option.
