Richard Masters, in an interview with The Sun, stated: "If at all possible, yes, there will be a ceremony and they will pass the trophy round. We would like to have a trophy presentation to give the players and staff the moment they have worked so hard for. So we would try and do it unless it wasn’t possible because of safety concerns. From a planning perspective, we are focused on finishing the 2019-20 season, but we also have to plan for all eventualities."
