Hull City could be set to lose up to £1m in matchday revenue if this year’s league campaign cannot be completed this term according to a report from the Hull Daily Mail.
The Tigers have four more games still to play at the KCOM Stadium before the season reaches a conclusion, but due to recent events, the EFL have made the decision to postpone all fixtures until the 3rd April.
It remains to be seen as to whether clubs will return to competitive action on this date as well, with the safety of supporters, players and the club’s staff being the main priority.
Hull are struggling for positive results in the Championship, and find themselves sat 21st in the second-tier standings with nine games remaining this season.
The Tigers were in contention for a top-six finish earlier this season, but since the departure of Jarrod Bowen and Kamil Grosicki, Grant’ McCann’s side have struggled to find positive results.
Hull are without a win in their last 12 games in all competitions, and this recent update on the potential loss of income will only add to their supporters’ worries heading towards the summer.
If the proposed return date is true, then Hull’s next game will be against promotion-chasing West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns on the 4th April in what is certain to be a tough test for the Tigers as they look to end a poor run of form.

This is a worrying update to hear of for the Hull City supporters.
They’ve been in terrible form on the pitch this year, and I really do fear that they could be relegated into League One if they’re to continue to struggle in the Championship.
We’ve already seen National League side Barnet lay-off their non-playing staff due to recent events, so it’s clear to see that this is going to have an impact on a number of clubs in the coming weeks.
You would imagine that clubs will be keen to complete their season, although they’ll be understanding that the current situation prevents them from doing so.
