The Scottish FA Board suspends ALL domestic professional and grassroots football
Sunday’s derby between Rangers and Celtic has been postponed as the SPFL finally cancels this weekend’s slate of fixtures.
All four leagues under SPFL jurisdiction have been shut down with immediate effect, including tonight’s Premiership clash between Motherwell and Aberdeen.
The Joint Response Group said in a statement: “The Joint Response Group can confirm the decision of the Scottish FA Board to suspend ALL domestic professional and grassroots football under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA until further notice.
“As a result, the SPFL has announced the postponement of this weekend’s and following midweek’s fixtures, starting with tonight’s Premiership match between Motherwell and Aberdeen and the Championship match between Queen of the South and Ayr United.
“The Scottish FA and SPFL will continue to liaise with governments and UEFA in relation to domestic, European and International fixtures in the coming days and more information will be communicated at the appropriate time.
“The Scottish FA Board made its decision in the interests of the health and safety of players, match officials, staff, supporters and the general public.”
