As the world continues to try and deal with the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, and sport grinds to a halt, the EFL has given an update on the situation and where they currently stand.
On Friday all Premier League, EFL and Scottish football games were postponed following Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta testing positive for Covid-19.
Officials are to hold an emergency meeting on Thursday to discuss the way forward.
Expert medical advice is currently being gathered so that proposals can be put to clubs with detailed sporting and financial implications.
There has been speculation over the last number of days that the current football season could be declared null and void which could possibly mean no teams could be relegated and promoted between the EFL Championship and the Premier League.
A statement released on the English Football League website today read;
"The health and well-being of EFL staff, players, Club employees and supporters is of paramount importance and will be key to the decisions made by football during what is clearly an unprecedented situation facing our game.
"It is with that in the forefront of the League’s mind that it notes the intense speculation that has appeared across the local, national and international media over the weekend.
"Whilst the League and its Board understand there is a strong desire from both the media and general public to understand what may happen next, there have, at this current time, been no decisions taken.
"The League also feels it inappropriate to respond to the many hypothetical solutions being suggested whilst the many unknowns remain. Given the fast paced environment and parameters we are currently working within, it is simply not practical to give a running commentary on what may happen.
"In the immediate short term we will continue with our contingency planning to deal with the implications the outbreak of Covid-19 has presented the EFL and its Clubs, in addition to liaising with the Government, health authorities and football partners.
"A further update will be given once the EFL Board has met this week."
