EFL: Shaun Harvey on Derby County v Cardiff City

22 March 2018

EFL Chief Executive Shaun Harvey said:

“The issues the EFL and both Derby County and Cardiff City have faced since Sunday’s postponement have been challenging, complex and difficult for a number of reasons, not least the early kick-off time which forced decisions to be made much earlier than is usual in these circumstances.

“As a result of this week’s events a number of important lessons have been learned and we will be working on some revised advice and guidance that will be issued to all 72 clubs in the event they are faced with a similar scenario in the future.

“Whilst the EFL maintains the correct decision was ultimately taken by Derby County, it is important to note that in their submission, Cardiff City FC raised some exceptionally valid points that, quite rightly, will form part of our overall review.

“We will be putting the issue of match postponements on the agenda for our next Supporter Engagement Meeting that will take place before the end of the season in order to directly address these issues and to understand how we give the appropriate consideration to the fans who are affected by these decisions.”
