Premier League Restart Date Announced!


The government have given the Premier League the green light to restart the season from 1 June.

Football in the UK has been shut down indefinitely in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed more than 30,000 lives and impacted thousands more.

Premier League clubs have committed to finishing the season in some shape or form with plans for matches to be played behind closed doors at neutral venues already drawn up.

The league have maintained throughout though that any move to bring the game back must be in line with government protocol with these latest guidelines from No 10 likely to be seen as a major step forward in the process.

Under the measures, set out by Prime Minister Boris Johnson as part of his "roadmap" out of lockdown, sport will be permitted to be broadcast from behind closed doors from the start of next month at the earliest "while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact".

The announcement comes as part of step two of the five-step plan alongside additional moves to allow more children back to school, the re-opening of some non-essential retail and the use of more public transport.
