Football in most parts of the world is temporarily on halt due to the coronavirus danger. In return, football businesses are facing financial trouble. Since matches were suspended, clubs can't generate sales, and stores were closed for their football kits etc.

In the Premier League, all games were postponed until at least the 30th of April and will only resume if the conditions allow and it being safe to play. Italy, Germany and Spain have also moved their leagues' remaining matches indefinitely. Even Football's European governing body, UEFA (Union of European Football Associations), has followed suit. European countries have accumulated the most coronavirus cases and deaths.

As a result, football clubs were forced to impose salary cuts to their players due to the financial crisis. In Bundesliga, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, and Cologne have already imposed pay cuts as the players signaled they are ready to waive part of their salaries to help the club. Given the indefinite time of matches to be resumed, other football clubs are expected to follow.

There were several football identities who were tested positive for the coronavirus. Below are tested positive,

- Mikel Arteta (Manager, Arsenal FC)

- Evangelos Marinakis (Owner, Olympiacos & Nottingham Forest)

- German Pezzella (Fiorentina)

- Patrick Cutrone (Fiorentina)

- Daniele Rugani (Juventus)

- Timo Hubers (Hannover)

- Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea)

- Manolo Gabbiadini (Sampdoria)

- Omar Colley (Sampdoria)

- Albin Ekdal (Sampdoria)

- Antonino La Gumina (Sampdoria)

- Morten Thorsby (Sampdoria)

- Jannes Horn (Hannover)

Until this pandemic disease is over, football won't be resuming, and there has been a serious scare that the current season will be cancelled or delayed.
