Premier League May Not Resume Until June 19th

Managers and captains were briefed on medical protocols yesterday surrounding a return to play. 

The potential resumption date of the Premier League could be pushed back to June 19th. 

Managers and captains of all 20 clubs were briefed on medical protocols yesterday surrounding a return to play. 

UEFA had previously wanted a decision by May 25th, but it’s now believed European football’s governing body have relaxed that deadline. 

The immediate future of the divisions below the Premier League remains unclear. 

The EFL say clubs will be unable to train until May 25th and they want more clarity around testing of players.

The EFL board have warned that the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic will not be rectified simply by a return to play behind closed doors.
