The Premier League ‘Project Restart’ plan can go ahead after the UK government confirmed that sporting events can again take place from 1 June.
A government-issued document stated that:
“Permitting cultural and sporting events to take place behind closed-doors for broadcast,while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact.”
All 20 Premier League clubs held a videoconference meeting on Monday to discuss the way forward for the league.
There has been no decisive decision from the clubs just yet with lots of parameters regarding a league return to be discussed.
Chief among them is the idea of playing at neutral venues which is said to be strongly opposed by the bottom six clubs unless the league can scrap relegation plans for the season.
There has been no news from the Premier League yet but the announcement from the government should see a renewed effort in finding a solution to get action underway.
With Champions League reportedly set to begin on 7 August, the league will likely need to have needed by the end of July.
The Bundesliga will return on 16 May while La Liga is scheduled to return in June.
