The English Premier League has not decided to postpone the last round of this year. The clubs did not agree to this.
The Premier League has been torpedoed by another wave of the coronavirus pandemic in recent days. Due to the numerous infections caused by the highly contagious omicron variant, many league matches had to be postponed. Over the weekend, of the 10 planned meetings, only four took place.
There is already some confusion in the Premier League schedule. It may be intensified in the coming days – the Christmas and New Year period are very intense in the Premier League.
Faced with this situation, Premier League chiefs met with club representatives on Monday. The council discussed postponing the twentieth round, which will be held from December 28-30.
Some managers were in favor of introducing a short break in the competition. Eddie Howe from Newcastle and Thomas Frank from Brentford spoke loudly about it. For now, however, there will be no changes to the schedule. The position of the Premier League and most clubs is clear – we are playing as planned as long as the pandemic situation allows. So it is possible that the interruption will happen on its own sooner or later.
The next round of the Premier League is scheduled to take place on December 26-27. Her strike will be the competition between Manchester City and Leicester.
