Club Statement: Motherwell match postponed

Kilmarnock Football Club can confirm that tonight’s Scottish Premiership match against Motherwell will not take place as scheduled.

Six players in total have now tested positive and following discussions with NHS Ayrshire & Arran Public Health, the Scottish Government, East Ayrshire Council and the footballing authorities, our entire first-team playing squad have been advised to self-isolate until October 14.

This is in order to minimise the risk of further cases in the player and other staff groups at the club, in the wider local community, and to support Test and Protect.

The SPFL Board met this afternoon and agreed to our request to postpone the fixture and an investigation will now be carried out by the league around the circumstances leading to the postponement.

A spokesman for the SPFL said: “No new date for this fixture has been set, pending the outcome of the SPFL investigation.”

The health and wellbeing of our players and staff remains critical and all six individuals are either asymptomatic or are experiencing mild symptoms at this time.

All relevant Public Health measures are in place and a deep clean of the stadium will take place.

The Killie Club and The Killie Shop remain open as usual and all government guidelines must be followed.

Any supporter who purchased Pay Per View for the match should note that your purchase will cover the game whenever it is rescheduled.
