Premier League ‘exclusive’ reveals when football could be set to return after Government talks

Premier League football could return behind closed doors in June after being given a ‘tentative green light‘ following talks with the Government, according to The Mirror.

Their Sunday-night ‘exclusive’ states that a ‘tentative agreement’ has been put in place, on the grounds that the country will already be beyond the peak of the disease which is expected to be in a fortnights time.

Plans would see the football season resume, but with strict measures put in place, preventing fans from attending matches and with players being kept in sterile environments – similar to the ‘World Cup camps’ that had previously been mooted.

Talks are in place with broadcasters to show all of the remaining games, and there is even a chance the 3pm blackout rule could be temporarily lifted due to the extreme circumstances.

The Mirror also report that Premier League clubs were told in Friday’s meeting to expect a return in June – but reiterated that games will be played behind closed doors.

Sound like potentially good news to me, as long as the player’s safety is paramount then getting the football back would be an absolute winner.

It would have been a disaster to totally write off the season, especially as we have a chance of getting to Wembley, even if it will be played behind closed doors…
