Premier League void ruling emerges

Liverpool would lose out on the Premier League title were the season voided but the chances of that seem slim with the EFL not in agreement.

Premier League clubs will not be allowed to void the current season and prevent Liverpool from becoming champions.

The Reds have sat top of the pile for the entire campaign and enjoy a 25 point lead at the summit.

But the coronavirus pandemic has seen football across the land grind to a halt and put their first title in three decades in jeopardy.

Liverpool bigwigs will join the other 19 teams for a meeting on Friday via video conferencing where they will discuss the next steps.

There is a willingness from four clubs to scrap the season and begin planning for the next campaign.

West Ham, whose vice-chairman Karren Brady went public with her views on the idea, BrightonWatford and Tottenham are thought to be the quartet.

That would present broadcast issues however with a potential loss of £1.2bn across the top-flight clubs.

But the Premier League cannot decide to void the current campaign – it would need agreement from the FA League Committee and the EFL, reports the Liverpool Echo.

The Championship would be the league most affected as it would end any chances of promotion.
