Hull FC can confirm that club Chairman Adam Pearson is in hospital undergoing treatment for Covid-19.
The Black and Whites’ owner is in a stable condition and undergoing routine treatment for Coronavirus.
He will be watching his team live on SkySports from hospital this Thursday as the club look to book their place in the Betfred Super League Grand Final.
Hull FC Chief Executive, James Clark, who has been in daily contact with the Hull FC Chairman, said:
“Adam is in good spirits and extremely grateful for the support and well wishes he has received, in particular the fantastic efforts of the nurses and medical staff who are working around the clock in very challenging circumstances.
“He has had a rough few days, but we are looking forward to getting him back at the club in the near future after some much needed rest and recuperation.
“It is business as usual at Hull FC – day-to-day operations continue as normal as we continue to address the challenges faced by Covid-19 and ensuring the team have the best possible preparation for Thursday’s semi-final.”
He added, “I know Adam is looking forward to watching the game this week and hopefully he will be able to join us at the KCOM Stadium if we can earn a place in the Grand Final.
“I speak on behalf of everyone associated with the club in wishing Adam the best of health and a speedy recovery.”
The club will make no further comment and would politely ask that people respect the privacy of Adam and his family at this difficult time.
