The Premier League insists that it has no plans to interrupt the planned 2021-22 fixture schedule in spite of the new outbreak of COVID-19 that has hit the United Kingdom this winter. Football has not escaped the general growth in new cases, with six games falling victim to the pandemic at the weekend.
But while a COVID ‘circuit-breaker’ had been mentioned as a potential option for the league, fixtures will not be cancelled unless absolutely necessary. The Premier League also revealed that uptake on COVID-19 vaccines has been higher among footballers than the general population in the same age group, and that those numbers will be published on a regular basis from now on.
