All Championship games postponed

last updated Friday 13th March 2020, 12:45 PM

All Championship games have been postponed until at least the 3rd of April. This includes tonight's game against Brentford and the up coming games against Leeds and QPR.

Football League statement
The FA, Premier League, EFL and Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until 3 April at the earliest.

This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of Clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the COVID-19 virus.

The postponements include all matches in the Championship, League One and League Two, as well as all Academy and youth team fixtures.

In addition, Clubs are being advised to suspend indefinitely all non-essential activities which include, but are not limited to, player appearances, training ground visits and fan meetings.

Whilst the EFL Board has continued to take the advice and guidance offered by the Government and its health advisors, emerging developments mean now is the time to implement football’s contingency plans in response to the crisis.

A further update on these plans will be given post an EFL Board Meeting next week.

This decision has not been taken lightly, but the EFL must prioritise the health and well-being of players, staff and supporters while also acknowledging the Government’s national efforts in tackling this outbreak.

Fulham FC statement
Following this morning’s latest announcement from the EFL, the Club can confirm that this evening’s scheduled fixture against Brentford has been postponed.

As was specified in the statement, the Football League will be suspended until at least April 3rd, meaning that our fixtures against Leeds United and Queens Park Rangers will also be postponed.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we trust fans understand the unprecedented situation we find ourselves in.

We will provide details regarding rearranged dates, future fixtures, and related ticketing information when available.
