Premier League Clubs 'Drawing Up Plans' For Whole Of 2020-21 Season To Be Played Behind Closed Doors

Premier League clubs could be expected to play the entirety of the 2020-21 season behind closed doors due to the impact of the coronavirus, according to reports.

England's top-flight domestic league has been suspended since early March amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Despite clubs wanting to finish the current season in its entirety, the coronavirus could reportedly have a knock-on effect for the following campaign.

The Daily Mail reports that some Premier League clubs have started to explore the 'implications of fixtures without supporters for the next 12 months.'

And the newspaper added that fans might not be allowed to attend live fixtures at stadiums until there is a vaccine available for coronavirus.

The behind-closed-doors scenario is expected to significantly impact clubs' revenue due to the lack of ticket sales and match-day income.
