Northampton Town Football Club are very disappointed to announce that the Boxing Day Sky Bet League 2 fixture with Walsall has been suspended.
The club informed the EFL that it would be unable to fulfil the fixture at Sixfields due to a number of positive COVID-19 cases in their squad.
In light of the increased transmission rate of the Omicron variant, the EFL will now review the circumstances surrounding the postponement. In addition it will assist affected clubs throughout this challenging period to help them mitigate against the risk of infection amongst players and staff, while ensuring their obligations to the EFL regulations are maintained.
A rearranged date for the fixture will be confirmed in due course.
Supporters are asked to keep their tickets safe as tickets and packages purchased for the game will be valid for the rearranged date.
Details of refund options for match ticket holders unable to make the rearranged date will be confirmed when the new date is known.
