LONDON, April 25: The English Premier League are eyeing a resumption of the season on June 8, behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic, and reaching a climax on July 27, according to The Times.
The paper claims football chiefs, along with other sports governing bodies, have been holding talks with the British government about when they can resume and at only �approved grounds�.
The Premier League has 92 games remaining since it suspended the season on March 13 with Liverpool agonisingly close to their first ever EPL title. The Times says Premier League bosses shared their idea �Project Restart� with the shareholders last week.
The matches would be played behind closed doors � a maximum of 400 people would be permitted to attend including media though only if they tested negative for the virus � and at selected stadia to limit stretching the limited resources of the medical services.
Extra changing facilities would be introduced to ensure social distancing measures were in place whilst players would be required to turn up for training individually and already in their kit. � AFP
