Fans may not be able to return to watch live matches in England until end of March BBC Sport report.
This was a decision reached on Tuesday by sports governing bodies the source disclosed. Officials from football, rugby, cricket, Formula 1 and horse racing were informed of the development.
Also in attendance were officials from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), represented by Culture secretary Oliver Dowden.
Also, Premiership Rugby chief executive Darren Childs has this to say according to the source:
“The announcement that supporters will not be allowed into stadiums for up to six months cuts off crucial revenue for clubs who have already suffered significant financial losses from suspending the season and playing matches behind closed doors since March.
“We believe the lack of supporters in our grounds could cause irreparable damage to our clubs and the communities they serve, so we must find a way forward to avoid this.”
It was resolved that the ban on fans will be under review until winter.
