The emergency meeting held on Friday came after two huge names in English football – Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta and Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi – contracted COVID-19.
The EFL board agreed unanimously that as a precautionary measure all matches in the Championship, League One and League Two would be temporarily suspended.
AN EFL statement said: “Having considered the increased number of cases affecting Club Players and staff, the Board were unanimous in their approach and it has been determined that all football activity scheduled to take place this weekend and until April 3, 2020 will be postponed.”
