Just wondering how the poor darlings would manage on such money!
The answer to your question is yes - in theory. But, remember, a lot would depend upon how the footballer's contract of employment was worded. If their contract allows clubs to lay them off temporarily for the duration of the football shut down then the government would be obliged to pay the clubs 80% of of their contract up to a maximum of £2,500 per month.
However, as I said above, it all depends on how the contract is worded. As I understand it they are being required to do as much training at home as they would if they were turning up to train at the club. The only reduction in their hours is the 90 minutes game time plus pre-match briefing and post match warm down. So they haven't really been laid off. So I doubt if the government subsidy will apply.
