Premier League: Tottenham vs Brighton postponed after Covid-19 outbreak

The Tottenham vs Brighton match in the Premier League has been postponed after a COVID outbreak at the North London club. Their Europa Conference League match against Rennes was called off after it was revealed that eight players and five staff members tested positive for the virus. Following a meeting, the Premier League board granted a request by Tottenham for their game against Brighton to be rearranged.

“The Premier League Board has taken the decision to postpone the game following guidance from medical advisers, with the health of players and staff the priority,” the Premier League said in a statement. “The Premier League will continue to follow Government guidance. Players and staff who test positive will isolate for 10 days – with no sporting exception. Premier League clubs have reverted to ’emergency Covid protocols’ for first-team squads around training grounds and stadiums, which includes social distancing, mask-wearing, and treatment no longer than 15 mins per session.”

“We should like to apologize to everyone at Stade Rennais and Brighton & Hove Albion and to both their supporters and ours for any inconvenience caused.” A Spurs statement read. “We should also like to thank both clubs for their understanding during these challenging times.”
