It would appear that the plan is the football season will be completed instead of it getting the null and void treatment, which should be celebrated by fans up and down the country.
Are the Whites going up?
Obviously, it’s the best thing for Leeds fans who are all hoping to finally get back into the Championship and so being able to play the season out to a close it exactly what was wanted – Whites want to seal a return to the top in the best manner possible.
And, as per Phil Hay, the FA has postponed the game to April 30, with a view to moving the deadline for the season back so all games can be played:
The FA has postponed all professional football in England to April 30 (delayed again from April 3). FA rules state each season must end by June 1 but the FA is extending that limit indefinitely to help leagues finish. #lufc

Of course, it remains to be seen what happens in the coming weeks but the hope will be that this season will finish one way or another, and we can get back to getting excited about the games and the run-in that lies ahead.
Fans, then, have reacted to the news on social media so let’s take a look at the best of what has been said:
Get in the boys. Elland Road fifa 21 confirmed?

Best to delay start of next season rather than never finish this

One day, eventually, football will return.
When that day comes it should be continuation of the 2019/2020 league.

Season has to finish or there will be months if not years of law suits and a tainted league from premier right down to the lower leagues!
