Premier League Raises Hope For Resumption In June.


The Premier League has reportedly been given the green light to return on June 12.

UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson addressed the public on Sunday, revealing a plan to guide the country out of lockdown in the coming months.

These plans will give the green light for professional sports to return next month, including the Premier League’s planned resumption in the month of June, subject to safety conditions being met and coronavirus infection rates not rising.

Boris Johnson said he believed the return of sport on TV would “provide a much-needed boost to national morale.”

Supporters face a long wait to be allowed to attend matches, though, with the latest guidelines recognising a return to sport in front of a crowd “may only be fully possible significantly later depending on the reduction in numbers of infections”.

Before the resumption of matches can be considered, protocols need to be agreed on how to return to group training safely and on how the Premier League would deal with positive tests.

Brighton confirmed on Sunday that a third member of their squad had tested positive.

Cases have also been found in squads in Germany, where the Bundesliga is due to restart this weekend, as well as Italy, Spain and Portugal in recent days.
