The wave of sports cancellations that hit the United States Thursday has now washed ashore in Europe.
Via BBC.com, the English Premier League has been suspended until at least April 3 because of the spread of coronavirus.
All matches in England’s lower leagues and women’s leagues have also been postponed.
A few English teams are owned by NFL owners, including Arsenal (Stan Kroenke), Manchester United (Glazer family), and second-division Fulham (Shad Khan).
Also, UEFA — the governing body for European soccer — has postponed the rest of the Champions League and Europa League.
Those competitions pit teams from multiple countries, making it reasonable to hold off the games until the situation stabilizes.
