English football remains in lockdown due to the coronavirus outbreak with the Premier League and EFL frantically trying to find a solution in which the campaign can be played to a finish.

The idea of resuming the season behind closed doors has been discussed as the most favoured outcome with competitions not set to resume until June at the earliest.

And in a race against the clock to begin next season on time, The Times report the FA has offered the use of Wembley and its national football centre to speed up wrapping up the season.

Indeed, this could include hosting several matches on the same day and keep travelling between venues for players, officials and the media to a minimum.

Additionally, It is believed St George’s Park could be quarantined as a training centre. It has a hotel with 228 guest rooms on site, and 13 top-quality pitches, of which five are floodlit.

Under the plans for playing in empty venues, all games would be shown live on TV or streamed.

That said, no plans discussed have been made concrete, with the prospect of playing at the two national venues one of many other proposals.
