Premier League Likely To Return June 12

 

The league was suspended a few weeks back because of coronavirus.

The 2019/2020 season of the English Premier League is expected to resume on June 12, 2020.

However, reports say matches are likely to be held behind closed doors at neutral stadiums.

And the June 12 ‘restart project’ is subject to an approval by the British Government.

Reports in the British media indicate that clubs in the league remain determined to finish the 2019/2020 season if possible.

But that, for them, will be with approval from the British Government.

Players are expected to be tested twice every week for coronavirus.

Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, had earlier indicated that the easing of the lockdown in the UK will be done in stages.

According to reports, the various teams are looking to begin some form of formal training from May 18, with a target for the return of games to resume the season on June 12.
