Club following League guidelines on coronavirus

As things stand there is no instruction from the EFL to play games behind closed doors due to the coronavirus.

However, if instructed to do so, Town could stream matches online free of charge.

The current guidance is that the Club is to operate 'business as usual'.

“We’re taking guidance from the EFL and their instruction at the moment is that it should be business as usual," Town secretary Stuart Hayton told the Club website.

“The club has held an internal meeting to discuss the way forward if the situation changes.

"We have discussed the potential to bring in a mobile sanitiser unit, as was used at Twickenham for the rugby last weekend, for the game against Portsmouth at Portman Road on 21 March.

“We've also looked at the possibility of streaming matches free of charge to supporters should we be instructed to play behind closed doors like they have been in Italy and Europe.

“Like all businesses, an internal email has been sent around with guidelines about best practice regarding hygiene and what the remote working procedure would be for each department if required.”
