Manchester United will pay all matchday and non-matchday casual workers, even if there are no games played for the remainder of the season.
The suspension of football in England due to the coronavirus outbreak has been extended until April 30 but Premier League bosses have stated they are willing to extend the season indefinitely, to finish it out.
United are due to play four more matches of the 2019/20 season at Old Trafford.
Whatever Premier League officials decide, with regard to completing this season, a statement released by United today has confirmed that their staff will not be left out of pocket.
"Manchester United will pay all its loyal matchday and non-matchday casual workers, should Premier League games be cancelled or played behind closed doors for the remainder of this season," reads the statement.
"This goodwill gesture reflects the club’s desire to reduce the financial uncertainty facing its casual workforce, and is in recognition of the crucial role they play in delivering services to supporters.
"The goodwill payment will be made to all matchday and non-matchday casual workers who have worked for the club in the past three months."
United's executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, added that the casual workers employed by the club are vital to its operations.
"We rely on our outstanding staff to deliver an exceptional service and experience to fans at Old Trafford," said Woodward.
"We understand that these are unprecedented circumstances and want to give them security whatever may happen regarding our remaining fixtures this season.
"We look forward to welcoming back all our supporters - and our colleagues - to Old Trafford as soon as possible."
Meanwhile, the Athletic's Liverpool correspondent James Pearce reports that Liverpool will continue to pay casual matchday staff for postponed home games up until the end of April.
The Reds are down to play three home matches in that space of time which means the club will fork out £750,000 to ensure the staff are not left in the lurch.
