The English Premier League Is Coming Back

The EPL has been suspended since the 9th of March.They have been unable to make any decisions due to the lockdown and now they await changes from the government, in the upcoming week

Premier League clubs have been told they cannot use their own stadiums for any resumption of games this season, with only “approved neutral venues” to host remaining fixtures in a campaign currently on hold due to the new coronavirus pandemic.

But on Friday all 20 clubs held a conference call in which they looked at plans for a resumption of training later in May followed by a possible return to competitive action in June. During the meeting clubs were informed that an eventual resumption of matches would see them played only at neutral venues which have been approved from a health and safety point of view, a source familiar with the discussion told Reuters.

The league has also held talks with club medical staff and other medical experts about how restricted team training might be able to return later this month if the government allows the professional sport to resume. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised to set out this week a “menu of options” on how restrictions could be eased but said the exact dates of any change would be driven by scientific advice.

The government had originally set May 7 as the day they would review lockdown restrictions. The Premier League clubs plan to meet again as soon as possible after any government announcement on the lockdown.
