Stoke City have issued this club shop update amid coronavirus outbreak



Stoke City have announced they are now operating a card-only policy at both their club shops.

Staff will not be accepting cash at either the bet365 Stadium store or in the intu Potteries Shopping Centre, although both remain open.

The club says the decision has been taken following latest government advice regarding the coronavirus.

The intu Potteries store will also be reducing its opening hours from tomorrow.

The shop will now open at 10am and close at 4pm – and there will be no late shopping nights for the foreseeable future.

The bet365 Stadium store will continue with its current opening hours; 9am to 5.30pm from Monday to Friday and 9am to 5pm on Saturdays, closed on Sundays.

Stoke also run an online store.

Stoke’s fixtures have been postponed until at least April 3 and the EFL board is meeting today to discuss possible options.

The league said in a statement this morning: “While the league and its board understand there is a strong desire from both the media and general public to understand what may happen next, there have, at this current time, been no decisions taken.

“The league also feels it inappropriate to respond to the many hypothetical solutions being suggested whilst the many unknowns remain. Given the fast paced environment and parameters we are currently working within, it is simply not practical to give a running commentary on what may happen.

“In the immediate short term we will continue with our contingency planning to deal with the implications the outbreak of Covid-19 has presented the EFL and its clubs, in addition to liaising with the Government, health authorities and football partners.”
