The Premier League have signed off on plans to finish the season based on points per game if the current campaign has to be curtailed, according to reports in the UK.
Last week, proposals were agreed at a shareholders meeting between all 20 top-flight clubs but the formal vote only took place yesterday.
However, the cut-off point (in terms of the number of games that need to be played) has not yet been decided upon. With most teams having played just three games so far, the season would likely be ruled null and void if matches had to be stopped immediately, but the UK government are putting a series of measures in place to prevent another lockdown.
There has been a spike in COVID-19 cases in the UK over the past few weeks and it has led to the decision to halt plans for fans to return to stadiums in October. It is believed all Premier League games will have to be played behind closed doors for the next six months.
