English Football League Still Hopeful
Based on betting pick reports, the EFL is thinking of playing the playoff games on all three divisions. However, there’s still no decision on where the game will take place. It will depend on the health situation of the nation at that time.
The EFL holds home and away semi-finals, and the finals at the Wembley Stadium. Also, the EFL told clubs to inform players that they should take their yearly leave during the coronavirus pandemic.
Clubs should also issue updates on player registration and contracts. FIFA suggested extending players’ contracts that were supposed to end in June.
