The Premier League season could restart in July with clubs discussing the possibility of playing up to five matches a day in a bid to get the campaign completed. The plans, carried by the Independent, would see isolated camps in the Midlands and London host the matches behind closed doors and would allow all 92 remaining matches to be televised. Though the Premier League want to work to the quickest time frame, they will wait until the ‘curve’ of the coronavirus has been ‘flattened’ in the UK before restarting. It’s hoped that this could be in June, perhaps July.
Talks are still at an early stage but with the ‘peak’ of the pandemic expected in a fortnight’s time in the UK, it’s hoped that there would be enough due time afterwards that the season could restart in around three months’ time. (Text courtesy Metro)
