Elite League Season Closed
The Elite League Board has opted to cancel all matches with immediate effect.
Clubs had hoped to complete the regular season and in the wake of last evening’s government guidelines, based on the up-to-the-minute scientific advice to allow sporting fixtures to continue, that seemed possible.
However, since then two teams have now reported they have players in self-isolation purely as a precaution but the health and safety of our fans, players and staff has to be paramount.
In the wake of that news, the Elite league has no choice but to shut down the rest of the season.
The league feels it has taken its ‘can-do, will-do’ efforts to the limit and whilst the outcome is sure to disappointment fans across the country there was no alternative in these unprecedented times.
We are confident everyone will understand the rationale behind the league’s decision.
Further announcements will follow next week.
