Newcastle United's games could be moved AWAY from North East – here's why

The Premier League’s remaining games could be played behind closed doors – in the Midlands.

Stadiums could reportedly stage more than one game a day – and teams could play every three days. The report claims that using a limited number of stadiums would keep the numbers of medical staff and police down to a minimum. It would also deter fans turning up at games.
