the National hockey League is considering the continuation of the season in a neutral arena without the fans, reported the official website of the organization.
“Our goal is to prepare for any eventuality in the situation. We want the League was able to respond quickly to any changes and move on. However, it is too early to say which path we should choose,” said Deputy NHL Commissioner bill Daly.
the Official added that one option is to conduct the matches in a neutral arena without spectators. According to Daley, 25 clubs will be hard to access sites due to orders of local authorities, because in many cities the regime of isolation is valid until the end of April.
“I would say that this is one of the options. We will take it into consideration and discussed. However, this term is not preferred. We may be able to access stadiums by may 1, let’s wait,” concluded bill Daley.
the Regular championship of NHL was suspended on 12 March for an indefinite period because of the situation with coronavirus. Initially the period of isolation players were introduced until March 27th, then it was extended until 4 April. After that, the leadership of the League recommended not to lift the quarantine until April 15.
