Following last night's emergency meeting called by the Joint Response Group and SPFL, Dundee United FC would like to confirm that we submitted a request to the SPFL to bring forward the winter break and rescheduled any fixtures affected by the First Minister's most recent announcement. 

We believe doing so would allow more time to ensure the Government's vaccination booster programme to take greater effect and assist the whole country in winning the battle with the ongoing pandemic.

Further to this, it is fundamental to football that fans be allowed to attend matches and support the game. Bringing forward the winter break would mean fans will not miss out on attending fixtures over the next ten days.
