Preston North End can confirm that our Boxing Day fixture at Deepdale against Sheffield United has been postponed.
The club informed the EFL on Thursday morning that it would be unable to fulfil the fixture due to a significant number of positive Covid-19 cases within our squad.
The club have taken immediate action to shut the training ground temporarily in order to mitigate any potential further spread of the virus.
We apologise for the disappointment that this postponement causes to supporters of both clubs, however the priority remains the health and safety of everybody connected with the club at this time.
Match tickets will remain valid for the rearranged fixture, with a date to be confirmed in due course, but those supporters who wish to claim a refund can do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0344 856 1966.
