Manchester City have written to supporters offering a full refund for tickets, with seemingly no possibility that they will be able to attend this season’s remaining matches.
Pep Guardiola’s side had six games at the Etihad Stadium outstanding when the coronavirus outbreak shut down football across Europe.
While the Premier League is still intending to complete the season, the latest advice from the UK government is that professional sporting fixtures will not be allowed until June 1 at the earliest and then only behind closed doors.
The Champions League last-16 second leg against Real Madrid was a sell-out following City’s 2-1 victory in Spain in February, and will also be refunded along with any tickets sold for away games.
City are also waiting for information on when tickets will go on sale for next season amid the restrictions enforced by the Covid-19 outbreak.
“Please note that dates for the 2020/21 Seasoncard renewal period remain under review. We will share more information as soon as we are able to do so,” letters to supporters stated.
City are likely to play their remaining home games at the Etihad after Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said all 20 clubs were opposed to the idea of neutral venues.
The club’s matches still to be played include the home game with Liverpool, who are just six points short of claiming their first Premier League title.
