Footballers’ Covid tests on the day of matches are SCRAPPED for the EFL’s 72 clubs, in a bid to stop games being called off at the last-minute, even with cases surging across the sport
Footballers at EFL clubs will no longer take Covid tests on matchdays in a bid to stop last-minute postponements of games as all 72 clubs continue to battle with surging cases.
The move will come into force immediately and has been made in response to a number of late decisions surrounding the status of games across the country in recent weeks.
Such late decisions have led to fan anger with many supporters already travelling some distance to attend games, only to learn that they have been postponed.
Blackburn Rovers fans made the 114-mile trip to Hull on Boxing Day to discover that the game had been called off just two hours before kick off.
