Football off? - Edit apparently still on.

Post by ClaretAndJew » Mon Jan 04, 2021 8:14 pm

Did I just hear correctly on Sky News, Elite sports including Premier League is off?

I know they said Scottish football is still on from this afternoons announcement. I guess they can’t “work from home” though

I don't think they class Scottish football as 'Elite'....

Lots of footballers breaking the rules, no point in stopping them playing.
The rules don’t apply to footballers obviously.

All I've seen on the ITV and BBC is that it's a lockdown like last March, but nothing regarding football.

Someone on Sky News said or was off. Hopefully some clarity somewhere.

As soon as I saw Boris sat behind a desk/table with his hands clasped, I knew what was coming.

Is Elite the same as Professional? So if premier league continues then so does championship, league one and two?

It’s non-elite sports that are not permitted

Sports, leisure and worship

Other venues including zoos, golf and tennis clubs and outdoor gyms must close and team sports are not permitted.

However, elite sports will continue as will PE lessons and clubs for those children at school.

Places of worship will be permitted to open for socially distanced services and playgrounds will remain open.

I know we're premier league and we are obviously elite, but until this virus carry on I'd never heard the term ELITE SPORT to describe professional football so I dunno if football tiers 2, 3 and 4 are elite. Someone tell me!

Elite leagues are Premier, EFL & the Vanarama National leagues

I think they'll try and keep the PL and probably the Championship going if they can, if League 1 and below have to have a pause then so be it, if needs be they can extend their seasons until the end of June. however the higher leagues don't have this option due to the impending Euro's.

That's always a possibility, but you'd hope by the summer the situation will be a lot better then it currently looks.

Sure I heard today that the players who allegedly went out celebrating, ending in Prem league games being called off, won't face any sanctions??

In other words they can do what they want?

I suppose it depends what you mean by sanctions, I assume they're being fined by their respective clubs, now if you mean sanctions from the PL, then yes I agree they should face punishment, and if that means they're unable to be selected for their clubs then tough, the penny might finally drop for these players, because I'm sure their teammates and mangers won't be happy with their actions.

I think so. But even so id put it off another year or so. Particularly as last summer there was no break. And next years World Cup year.

They do have a window in 2022 as the WC won't be held until December, so there is some leeway if they wish to delay.

Like everything else we'll just have to play it by ear I'm afraid.

Yeah I realised that but that will still eat into the regular season meaning it starts earlier or finishes later or both.
