Supporters will not be able to attend the matches of course but it is understood that the matches will be available to watch all matches live on the club’s iFollow streaming service.

Garry Monk told media last week that the club are opting out of friendly matches against outside opposition prior to the restart, preferring to play inter-club friendlies.

He said: “I think from a health perspective, with this virus, why would you invite a group of people from outside into your sterile environment? I don’t see why you would do that. We’ll do it in-house, that’s the safest way in terms of player welfare and looking after ourselves.”
