Emergency Coronavirus. The Premier League hopes to start in mid-June

(ANSA) – LONDON, 18 APR – The Premier League hopes to resume the season in mid-June in time for the conclusion of the championship by the end of July. This is the hypothesis that has garnered the greatest acclaim in the course of the meeting, which was held in video-conference between the 20 clubs of the highest division of English. In the light of the trend of the pandemic coronavirus in the United Kingdom, with (at least) three more weeks of lockdown as they are decided by Downing Street, the beginning of the preparation of the teams will not start before mid-may. In the hope – Covid-19 permitting – to return to the field on the weekend of 13-14 June. At that point, English football would have seven weeks of time to play, probably behind closed doors, the remaining 92 games to finish the season. A solution that would leave you August free for international matches of the european cups, as provided by Uefa, imagine you place the final of the Champions League in Istanbul on Saturday, 29 August. It seems, vice versa, of everything belonging to the past, the idea of closing the season by the end of June, wiping out the last days of the season. If, however, the health emergency on the island does not permit a recovery of the season in the month of June, the club have also taken into account to suspend any activity until the next October, six months after the last official match played in England.
