According to a tweet from the Athletic journalist Phil Hay, the EFL have not changed their stance on Championship fixtures yet – with games going ahead as before.
Since the outbreak of coronavirus in the UK, there has been much debate surrounding the safety of attending football matches – with rumours since surfacing over a potential behind-closed-doors stadium ban. According to a report from Leeds Live, the EFL held a meeting amid the coronavirus threat just under a week ago – with football’s governing bodies, sports broadcasters and Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) also in attendance.
Now, according to Hay’s update, it appears the fixtures will go ahead as planned for now – with Leeds seemingly on the cusp of promotion and sitting at the top of the Championship table.
Many supporters have since had their say over the update, with one fan claiming he has ‘always loved the EFL‘, possibly sarcastically, while another claimed not to ‘tease‘. Find all of their diverse range of comments down below.
Ive always loved the EFL.

Got to shut it down I’m afraid. Should have already.

Wait till Leeds run away at the top then they’ll cancel the league.
