Following an emergency meeting, shareholders have unanimously decided to suspend the Premier League with the intention of returning on April 4.
The emergency shareholder meeting had been called after Arsenal confirmed their Head Coach Mikel Arteta had tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).
As a result the club’s upcoming Premier League game against Southampton and FA Cup tie against Manchester United will not take place as scheduled.
The club's scheduled U23 and academy games have also been postponed.
The health, safety and wellbeing of all staff, players and supporters continues to be the club’s absolute priority. The club continue to be guided and advised by the Premier League, government and NHS with regards to next steps.
Any further communication and updates will be issued by the club in due course.
