EFL clubs have been informed that the continuing coronavirus outbreak has made any chances of the 2019/20 football season resuming by April 30 impossible, a report from the Mail has revealed.

A new date for the re-start of the campaign is expected to be announced next week, following a meeting between the Premier League and the EFL.

Football bosses have reportedly accepted that, due to the country currently in lockdown and players unable to train, that the prospect of the campaign resuming on April 30 is not at all feasible.

The UK has been in lockdown since Monday evening when Prime Minister Boris Johnson addressed the nation, pleading for everyone to play their part and help slow down the spread of COVID-19.

Last Thursday, the FA announced that the season would be on hold until April 30, at the earliest, after saying that a temporary suspension would be in place until just April 3 the week before.

We understand that the EFL board is now instructing clubs not conduct any form of training activity until April 14 at the earliest, which, of course, depends on the state the country finds itself in at that point, with the spread of the virus still, according to reports, a couple of weeks away from reaching its peak.

The EFL plan to keep all of its member clubs updated with the very latest developments as time goes on, as they plan to hold discussions with the Government and other football partners about reaching a decision of when training can possibly resume.
