Following a meeting by the EFL this morning, a decision to suspend all fixtures until 3rd April has been made. This will affect all first team games, starting with tomorrow's game against Port Vale and also including games against Newport County (17th), Swindon Town (21st) and Cambridge United (28th).
Crawley Town Football Club will support any decision which ensures the wellbeing of supporters, staff and players, whilst also preventing the spread of the virus.
A decision on the club's day to day operations, including the hosting of events at The People's Pension Stadium, will be made on Sunday evening and communicated then.
In regards to ticketing, the club will continue to work with the EFL and the clubs we were due to play on a plan of action for the postponed matches.
Following discussions from Port Vale, supporters who have booked tickets for the fixture at Port Vale tomorrow will be able to receive a refund from the Crawley ticket office, once a decision regarding opening hours has been made, or can keep their ticket for the rearranged fixture.
We will continue to provide updates as and when applicable.
Having considered the options available, and after following advice from the government and the EFL, the club has taken the decision to close the club office, ticket office and shop, to the public, for 7 days until Monday 23rd March, where an update will then be provided. All events booked at The People’s Pension Stadium have also been cancelled.
Members of staff remain contactable via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). The club wish to stress that is a precautionary measure, and at present, no member of the first team squad or staff at the football club have tested positive for Coronavirus. Updates will continue to be made via this page and the club's social media.
Following the latest statement from the EFL, the club can confirm the club offices, ticket office and club shop will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
