Premier League Clubs May Stop Goal Celebrations

English Premier League clubs have been told to observe COVID-19 protocols which may require them to maintain social distancing when celebrating goals.

The EPL sent out new directives last week including demands that players tone down celebrations such as hugging after goals are scored and avoid handshakes and swapping shirts.

EPL chief executive Richard Masters followed that up with a letter to clubs on Tuesday, writing: “We are fortunate to be able to continue to play and bring our competition to fans at home and around the world.

“This brings justified additional scrutiny and the Premier League must take the lead in setting the right example to follow.”
