Fans of Birmingham City have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relays news regarding the resumption of the Championship season.
The tweet, which was posted by the official Birmingham City Twitter account, shared a link to a statement on the club website, which relayed the news that the Championship season is set to resume later this month.
The statement also relayed comments by EFL chairman Rick Parry, who stated: “With Sky Bet Championship clubs set to return to full contact training later this week and following Saturday’s government announcement, we are edging closer towards resuming the 2019/20 EFL season. We have therefore today consulted with the board’s Championship directors and agreed to fixtures restarting behind closed doors on 20 June.”
In reaction to the news, fans of the club have flocked to have their say on the matter, with many stating their delight at the thought of seeing their team back in action.
Great news – can’t wait to have it back – tho I’ve not missed the stress of it all over the past few weeks ?????

8 minutes into the restart and we’ll concede on the counter after winning a throw-in half way into their half. Only then will football be back ?

With Birmingham currently occupying 16th place in the Championship, eight points above the relegation zone and nine behind the play-off places, barring either a remarkable late surge up the Championship table or a catastrophic slide into the relegation scrap, it would appear that the club are set for a distinctly average finish to the season.
Do you think Birmingham could reach the play-off places this season?
However, this does not appear to have bothered many of the City fans, many of whom appear to be content with the idea of football being played competitively again.
