Portugal’s Primeira Liga will go behind closed doors with immediate effect with no date given for reopening stadiums to fans.

Top-flight as well as second division matches will be subject to the decision to exclude fans indefinitely taken at an emergency meeting of football authorities.

The decision followed a government measure recommending the cancellation or postponement of events involving more than 1,000 people in an enclosed space or 5,000 in open areas due to coronavirus.
