AFC Bournemouth’s next two Premier League fixtures – at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday (14th March) and away at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday 22nd March – have been postponed.
Following a meeting of shareholders on Friday morning, it was unanimously decided to suspend the Premier League with the intention of returning on Saturday 4th April, subject to medical advice and conditions at the time.
Given the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic and following advice from the Government, NHS and Premier League, this decision has been made to ensure the wellbeing of supporters, players and staff – which is the club’s utmost priority.
- Tickets for these fixtures will remain valid for the rescheduled dates. This includes official club travel tickets for the away fixture at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
- Single match ticket purchasers who are unable to make either rearranged fixture will be entitled to a full refund. Further details will follow in due course.
Supporters are advised to proactively keep up to date with the latest government advice on best practice in relation to stopping the spread of the virus, which can be found here.
Anyone who has recently travelled to the United Kingdom from a country with a high risk of coronavirus, or who is displaying any of the below symptoms, should immediately seek medical advice by calling the NHS 111 service or stay at home for seven days.
The symptoms include:
- A new, continuous cough
- A high temperature
Anyone with flu symptoms is asked to stay away from Vitality Stadium to avoid a potential spread. The club continues to monitor the situation closely and to take suitable measures to best protect the health of its employees and supporters.
