Arsenal are still planning to play their outstanding matches this season, according to an email they sent to Platinum Members this week.

As things stand, Arsenal are planning to play the final 10 to 13 games of the current campaign. That’s according to an email they sent out to their Platinum Members this week.

Currently, all Premier League football is off, but that’s only set to last until April 30th as things stand. There’s obviously scepticism about that return date, though, given the previous delay from April 4th and the current forecasts for the spread of coronavirus.

All the same, Arsenal’s message (via Mirror) seemed optimistic: “We continue to plan on being able to play our outstanding matches. We all want to be back playing football as soon as we possibly can, but only when it is safe to be doing so.”

The good news for Platinum members is that their ticket renewals are on hold. That was the main point of the email, that the potentially delayed end to the season is pushing renewals back.

For now, Arsenal players and staff are still isolating themselves. They originally planned to rejoin training this week, but in the end, made the decision that it still isn’t safe to do so. They came to that conclusion following talks with other Premier League clubs.

There’s still over a month until April 30th, so there’s plenty of time to isolate before they return.
