What are the Premier League rules on postponements?

Following the postponement of a series of matches in the weeks leading up to Christmas, a new Premier League guide has been released explaining match postponement protocols.

And there, these factors are taken into consideration when deciding whether to postpone a top-level match:

  1. The impact of COVID-19 infections on a club’s squad, as well as injuries, illness and isolation, and the number of players available on the squad roster and any Under-21 players with appropriate experience. Where a club cannot field 13 outfield players and a goalkeeper either from its roster or from its suitably experienced Under-21 players, the match will be postponed.
  2. The status of any COVID-19 outbreak within a club, including the number of people affected, the sequence and source of infections, and their proximity to the match in question.
  3. The ability of a club to safely prepare their players for a match.
  4. Medical advice on any unacceptable risk to the health and safety of players and staff during the match.
  5. Any advice from the UK Health Safety Agency and other public bodies.
  6. Any other exceptional circumstances.
