With football having already returned in Germany, and with the likes of Spain and Italy expected to follow suit, a proposed date for the Premier League’s resumption has now been revealed.
Premier League clubs met on Thursday to hold discussions on the league’s “Project Restart” campaign in order to set a date for the resumption of the 2019/20 season.
According to The Telegraph journalist John Percy, the majority of the clubs have indicated a desire to restart the season on 19 or 20 June 2020, which is a week later than the date that had previously been proposed.
The new timeline would also reportedly see the campaign draw to a conclusion by no later than 1 August, allowing for a short turnaround period for the yet-to-be-scheduled 2020/21 calendar.
From today’s Premier League meeting: majority of clubs are keen to restart season on June 19/20, with the season to conclude on/by August 1.
