CLUB STATEMENT: CORONAVIRUS

13 March 2020

BURTON Albion’s home game against Wycombe which was due to be played tomorrow has been postponed.

The EFL has today made the decision to suspend all fixtures in The Championship, League One  and League Two until April 3.

That means our away game at Rochdale on March 21, and our home game against Doncaster on March 28 are also suspended.

This suspension DOES NOT affect commercial activities at the Pirelli Stadium which will continue to be open for all business functions, conferencing and events as normal.

The Burton Albion Community Trust will also continue to operate, and the Community Hub and Community Football Centre are open as normal.

Burton Albion Chairman Ben Robinson said: “This has been a fast-moving situation and the club has been waiting for a decision from the EFL in terms of football activities.

“We now know that League One games are suspended until April 3, and we will update fans on re-arrangements and ticketing once the position becomes clearer. I want to thank our fans for their patience and understanding.

“Meanwhile, the Pirelli Stadium remains open and I would like to stress that all normal activities will continue at the football club including meetings, events and conferences.”

Matt Hancock, Head of Community at BACT, said: “We will be continuing to operate, and our staff will continue to deliver important services to the community.

“We have however made a decision to suspend a few of our programmes with participants who are most at risk, such as our Cancer Recovery project, our Extra Time Hubs and our disability programmes. We will continue to look after the most vulnerable members of the community. The BACT team will support people on an individual basis so that we remain connected to these communities as we don’t want these people to feel cut off at this worrying time.

 “Otherwise we will continue our engagement as normal within government guidelines and our staff will be active in supporting the community which we feel is now more important than ever.”

  • With tomorrow’s game suspended and food for corporate guests already bought and prepared the club will be donating as much as possible to Burton YMCA for distribution to those in need.
