Premier League clubs join forces to offer 100,000 free tickets to NHS workers when football returns from coronavirus crisis

Premier League clubs are uniting to reward brave NHS workers fighting coronavirus by offering them 100,000 tickets to football matches once the outbreak is over.

All leagues across the football pyramid are currently suspended as the UK deals with the deadly virus that has seen more than 8,000 cases and over 400 deaths.

There is a target date to return on April 30 but it is likely that date will be pushed back further with players in self-isolation following government instructions to stay indoors to prevent spreading the virus.
