The kind action of MU and Liverpool when Premier League is postponed

MU and Liverpool took the lead in kind action when the Premier League postponed the end of April because of Covid-19.

Premier League 2019/20 is suspended until April 30

The Covid-19 epidemic is crippling world football as most tournaments have been postponed to ensure public health. Recently, the Premier League organizers have agreed to postpone the tournament until the end of April instead of the April 3 milestone as originally expected. This decision was made after a stakeholder meeting on March 19.

Delaying the tournament for more than a month not only makes fans wait but also creates many other consequences. The easiest are those who make a match. Security, driving, sanitation staff, medical staff of the stadiums in the Premier League are in unemployment. They are usually seasonal workers and only get paid for the matches they take place.

According to a Independent UK investigation, these employees receive only about £ 8.21 per hour of work. With the tournament delayed until April 30, the risk of “starvation” of these employees is great. The same situation is experienced in the United States in the US professional basketball (NBA) teams.

The kind action of the football clubs

The clubs really want to help but cannot afford the cost to seasonal workers. Therefore, the French shadow star Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz) has donated $ 200,000 to the employees of the stadium to cover life during temporarily unemployed.

However, the situation in England is somewhat brighter with nice gestures from the clubs. Independent newspaper survey with 20 clubs currently playing in the Premier League about the ability to pay for the staff of the stadium during the time off because of Covi-19 and obtained very positive results.

Typically, Liverpool, the Anfield home team, still accepts to pay employees for three days of playing at home as expected (March 21, April 12, April 25) despite the fact that it does not take place. Each match will cost about 200,000 to 250,000 pounds per match so the total amount of Liverpool “relief” for the staff falls from 600,000 to 750,000 pounds.

MU also confirmed the same thing when the Old Trafford team wants to reduce financial anxiety for seasonal employees and recognize their important role for the club. However, the prerequisite is that these employees must work for the club for 3 months or more. In addition, Brighton, Crystal Palace, Wolves are also responding to this movement.
