Relegation Bound Teams May Escape if Season Ends Abruptly

There is unlikely to be any relegation from the English Premier League if the season ends with no more play possible because of the coronavirus outbreak, Brighton and Hove Albion owner Tony Bloom has told British media.

Premier League clubs met on Friday to discuss possible models for finishing the season but all options remained hypothetical after the U.K. government extended lockdown restrictions for another three weeks.

 

Brighton were two points clear of the relegation zone with nine matches remaining when the league was brought to a halt on 13 March.
