Hull City Ladies Updated Coronavirus Statement:
Hull City Ladies want to assure all our supporters that we’re committed to the safety and health of all our supporters and players.
We have needed to take the decision as a club to postpone all games and training sessions to ensure that staff and players are safeguarded. This will take place with immediate effect and we plan to review this at the end of the month.
Our home and away games against Burnley FC Women, 15th and 22nd March respectively, away game vs Sheffield United Women 19th March, our home game against Nottingham Forest Women 29th March have been postponed. It has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the Covid-19 virus.
The FA, Premier League, EFL, and FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until Friday 3 April at the earliest. This decision is being made purely on the number of cases requiring self-isolation and the impact on facilities.
However, no decision has been made as of yet regarding postponing the Women’s National League to the 3rd April, as of midday today Monday 16th March. However, we have made the decision to postpone all our games, we plan to review this at the end of the month.
We’re continuing to monitor the situation and are asking all our staff, players and supporters to follow the government guidelines to reduce the spread of the infection. Any updates on fixtures, children’s clubs, and events will be announced on our social media channels ASAP, and we want to thank everyone for their continued support during this period.
