Mark Smith started this petition to The FA and the government

Restrict the spread of COVID-19.

Every week hundreds of thousands of spectators, employees, players and coaching staff congregate on mass to watch their teams play. This is by far the biggest collection of people gathering across the country, it is the perfect scenario for COVID-19 to spread. Is a game of football really that important? (Ignore what Bill Shankly said)

It can not be classed as a fair season when teams are isolating players and staff, having to pick weakened teams, or having games postponed for weeks. This is only going to cause a back log of matches towards the business end of the season.

Therefore I suggest we just scrap this season off and start a new one when this whole thing blows over. We can put it down to a learning curve season with regards to VAR, hopefully come back next season as the best league on the planet again.

(This also includes cancelling all the other leagues too)
