Newcastle manager Steve Bruce has called for a ‘Festival of Football’ with games every day to help get the season completed when it is safe to play again following the coronavirus pandemic.

On Thursday, the Football Association announced results for the 2019-20 campaign will be expunged for non-league divisions below the National League and National League North and South.



The ruling also covers women’s football below the Women’s Super League and Championship, with no promotion and relegation, while grassroots football has also been brought to a close.



“We have to try and get this season finished, whatever that takes, everybody wants that – but we must also remember that the health and safety of players and staff is far more important than football,” Bruce said in an interview with The Telegraph.

“It probably means the start of next season will be delayed, we will probably have to scrap one of the cup competitions and do without a winter break, but it can be done.

“We should not return to training until it is absolutely safe to do so.

Magpies boss Bruce accepts that football must not consider a return “until it is absolutely safe to do so”, but clubs should be ready to hit the ground running.
