The clubs of the English Premier League decided not to postpone the matches of the 20th round. Boxing Day games will be held on December 28-30.
Premier League leaders today held a Zoom video conference with club representatives. The issue of postponing the tour was discussed due to a large number of cases of COVID-19 in the teams. It is reported that most clubs have expressed a desire to continue the championship on schedule. Liverpool was among those in favour of postponing Boxing Day matches.
It is noted that the main reason for this decision of the clubs lies in the unwillingness to suffer financial losses due to the postponement of the tour.
Last weekend, the Premier League cancelled six of its ten matches in Matchday 18 due to coronavirus outbreaks in teams, including games featuring Manchester United and West Ham.
