VITALITY Stadium has been closed in line with the government's latest advice regarding non-essential contact with others during the coronavirus pandemic.

Cherries have also halted all "customer-facing functions", saying the decision "has been made to ensure the health and wellbeing of employees and supporters - which is the club's utmost priority".

The Superstore will be closed for in-person purchases "until further notice", although online sales will remain.

The ticket office at Vitality Stadium is also currently closed with all future ticket sales also suspended, pending the outcome of Thursday's Premier League meeting.

Cherries are currently due to return to action against Newcastle on April 4.

The club statement also added: "All staff affected by this decision will continue to be paid in full throughout the temporary closure and the club continue to review this in line with government advice."

The Daily Echo understands injured players are still using the gym facilities at the club to aid with their rehab, while full training is currently still scheduled to resume on Monday.
