THE board of Hereford FC will be meeting in the coming days to discuss the possible impact of the coronavirus on the club.

Football clubs across the country face an uncertain time as if matches are postponed for the foreseeable future the matchday income stream will be lost during this time.

In a statement Hereford FC chairman Andrew Graham said: “I do not wish to push a panic button regarding the obvious threats and dangers that coronavirus presents, especially to anyone with underlying health conditions, but feel that it is necessary to update you on what we, as a club, are doing. 

“It is important that we as a board, remain calm and deliver a controlled response to this developing public health situation. 

“To do this, we will continue to monitor advice and updates from our Government, National Health Executive, the National League and any local official bodies that provide us with facts and suggested actions.

“The Hereford FC board will be meeting very early next week, and determining our strategic response, which will be based on the very latest advice / directives, influenced by local conditions.

“We will also be evaluating how this will affect us internally and financially and acting accordingly. Of paramount importance to us, is the health and well-being of all connected to, or associated with Hereford Football Club, together with their families and friends and any visitors to us.”
