MCA announces the suspension of the Liverpool Chess league.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus problem and recommendations from HM Government,
all fixtures in the Liverpool league and cup competitions are suspended until 30th April 2020.
By that date a decision will need to be taken whether matches can be resumed or the league programme cancelled. If cancelled, we will need to decide how best to finalise the 2019-2020 season.
David Pearcey 
President MCA
