Premier League To Resume Next Month

The Premier League has been given the green light from the government to resume next month.
Government in the United Kingdom has permitted the return of sport from June 1, as long as they are played behind closed doors, “while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact”.
Football and other sports in England have been suspended since mid-March, following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
However, many Premier League clubs have expressed commitment to finish the season, once it is safe to do so.
The government has now unveiled its “road map” to eventually easing lockdown restrictions, with step two of the map “permitting cultural and sporting events to take place behind-closed-doors for broadcast, while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact.”
Although football will be able to resume next month, fans may not be able to watch matches from the stands, until a vaccine for COVID-19 has been found.
Football clubs in England are expected to consult with the league, to agree on an official date matches will resume.
