Report: EFL write to Leeds with radical new plan for season, Elland Rd safety officer to respond

The EFL have written to Leeds United and every other club in the EFL to outline a new plan to complete the currently-suspended season, according to the London Evening Standard.

The newspaper claims that the EFL are considering a “radical” plan that would involve the usage of regional hubs.

They want to resume the season behind closed doors but there are concerns that using all 70 stadiums in the EFL is not safe or practical.

It is understood that the regional hubs would see a select few stadiums in London, the South West, the Midlands, the North East and the North West hosting matches without fans in attendance.

Leeds’ safety officer is now being told to respond to the EFL so that they can assess the potential usage of Elland Road once the season is able to resume.

The size and history of stadiums is not going to matter much once football gets back underway behind closed doors so that means Elland Road is as guaranteed to host matches as Salford’s Moor Lane is.

It remains to be seen what will constitute a stadium being a contender to host matches in these so-called regional hubs but time will no doubt tell once Leeds’ safety officer has sent his report to the EFL.

In other Leeds United news, Andrea Radrizzani has responded to a journalist discussing the season being voided.
