FOOTBALL and all other major sports are set to be warned: No vaccine, no fans.
PM Boris Johnson and his Government believe it is unlikely to be safe to stage events with crowds until a Covid-19 cure is found.
They will not even consider it until September at the earliest — and that could be extended even further until a vaccine is discovered.
This will be crushing news for football clubs who will have to prepare for at least half of next season behind closed doors.
And it will mean certain closure for some teams who will be unable to continue.
