Manchester United lost almost £ 28 million due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the final value much higher. The data are based on the results of the first quarter as of March 31.


Chief Financial Officer Cliff Baty said they were ready to pay the broadcaster £ 20 million in television revenue, even though the Premier League was over. In total, they lack to play 11 postponed matches.
United declined to state what the total expected financial cost of the pandemic would ultimately be. However, Executive Vice President Ed Woodward said the main burden would fall in the current quarter, which runs until June 30.
"Our quarterly results reflect the partial impact that the pandemic has had on the club, but we will have a greater impact in the current quarter and probably after. These are unprecedented times, and we must realize that this crisis will not go away overnight. Our club is built on solid foundations. We are still firmly optimistic about the long-term prospects of the club. "Undoubtedly, we are in one of the most unusual periods in the 142-year history of Manchester City," said Woodward.
Revenues for the quarter decreased by 18.7% to 123.7 mil. pounds. The club's debt increased by 124.4 mil. pounds to 429.1 mil. pounds.

Contact training in elite sports should receive government approval this week. Instructions for this release phase are currently awaiting signature from competent authorities.
The first phase, which included training for small groups while maintaining social distance, was approved last week, prompting the Premier League to encourage players to return to training. Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden's recent comments on the second phase are likely to increase ambitions to complete the season in several sports. The Premier League has previously announced a planned restart of matches on June 12, but an earlier start is currently being considered.
"First, we issued instructions for closed-door training, ie contactless training, which were published earlier this week," he said. "I hope that, together with the signing of the public health agreement in England and other countries, we will get to the next stage in the coming days, which will significantly help elite sports," the secretary said.
When it comes to broadcasting matches, a situation is considered where some games will be displayed for free. If there is no interruption of the TV signal on Saturday at 15:00. Discussions are currently underway on this topic with the Premier League, EFL and FA. "I think this step should benefit everyone," Oliver Dowden told the BBC.

Testing took place on Sunday and Monday, which brought six positive results in three Premier League clubs. Unnamed players or club employees have been moved to a seven-day quarantine.
A total of 748 players and employees from 19 clubs were tested. To complete the season, it is necessary to play 92 matches.
In previous days, the league has set the date of June 12 as the date of the restart, but with the latest information, it looks more like another postponement. "The league will not provide any specific information regarding clubs or individuals. The results will be published after each test round. "
At Monday's reunion meeting, English clubs agreed on more precise hygiene and safety measures for group training.
The German Bundesliga became the first major European league to restart the season after the coronavirus pandemic, resuming matches without spectators over the weekend. It took Germany almost five weeks from the introduction of contactless training to playing matches.
The Premier League will require approximately 40,000 tests to complete the season. The tests are performed by Digital Health Company Prenetics. Lasarow, the company's CEO, told BBC Sport, "The tests are 98.8% accurate." However, increasing the accuracy of the test guarantees repeated testing, which is carried out 48 hours after the first test. "

Captain Watford Troy Deeney loudly embarked on plans to restart the English Football League, expressing his opinion that he would not put football above his family's health. Deeney published his position during a coronavirus pandemic that claimed more than 33,000 lives in the United Kingdom.


"I am not currently debating about football, I am interested in the health of my family. If I feel that my family is in danger, I will not enter the playground. What will they do, take my money? I've been poor before, so I don't mind. If it's not safe for fans to be in the stadium, why should it be safe for players? ”Deeney said anxiously about the lack of social distances that footballers make compared to government recommendations.
Fanless games are currently being discussed until 2021. Many unanswered questions remain, such as the implementation of corner kicks, where 18 or more men tend to stand in a crowd at once, which contradicts the rules of distance.
