Coronavirus: The reaction
The Elite League announced that the rest of the current season should be canceled immediately due to lingering concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
We have closely followed the reaction on social networks and here is the choice of what we have seen since the news that 2019/2020 was prematurely and officially ended.
A player already has plans…
Sooooooo golf anyone? ⛳⛳😂😂

It's time for the summer signing window to start, albeit early

We like this idea…
It's time to look for proactive solutions to the league and club cash flows.
Organize a @officialEIHL & # 39; Magic Weekend & # 39; to start the season in Nottingham, the 10 teams involved (3 games on Saturday, 2 games on Sunday). This season, POFW tickets become valid for this new event.

With the news the NIHL always follows the directives, this MK player calls him…
NIHL is officially the toughest league in the world

Just, no, Dave. No * shake your head *

Listen, listen …
The main thoughts right now are with the players, some of whom will be put on notice and released from contracts weeks before the scheduled date.

Well said, this man
I want to start a trend here… @cardiffdevils I don't want refunds for the remaining games in the season, please use it to resolve any cash flow issues you may have. I want a team beyond this epidemic. Thank you

And a few words from those who face coal…
Extremely disappointed that this is how the @officialEIHL ended, but everyone's health is more important. I hope everyone has a great summer,

A huge thank you @Mcr_Storm @Mcr_StormOSC fans of the storm and my teammates. I don't know what my future holds but I want to keep playing. I think I still have a lot to give to the game and I guarantee you that I will train again this summer to make a difference next year. Thanks everyone!

This is also important because the clubs suddenly present their end-of-season plans today
Fans of @officialEIHL stop worrying about your money. Some clubs will not be able to honor player salaries or even afford to take them home. Support your clubs and leave them a few extra pounds. There are also rink staff who also rely on salaries, you know #think
