The UK government yesterday, approved the re-start of the English Premier League 2019/2020 season which was paused as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The UK government published a “roadmap” that could see the return of elite sport in England from June 1, as the 20 English top-flight clubs met for further talks on “Project Restart”, ministers announced plans to ease the coronavirus lockdown.
All matches are set “to take place behind closed doors for broadcast, while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact”.
The UK government had said before the kickstart of matches can be considered, protocols needs to be agreed on how to return to group training safely and on how the Premier League would deal with positive tests.
There is however a disagreement as the EPL clubs agitates against neutral ground usage proposed by UK government. The clubs says they want to be playing their matches in their stadia behind closed doors and that they can ensure the security of opponents.
All EPL fans, lovers and followers should be getting set for further interesting matches as Champions League qualifications fights continues and also staying up to avoid relegation.
