Premier League to restart from 17th June

The English Premier League is due to make its return after clubs agreed on measures to resume play from 17 June.

Following a three-month suspension due to the global pandemic, clubs agreed to resume the season with added safety measures to be put in place beforehand.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters commented: “Today we have provisionally agreed to resume the Premier League on Wednesday 17 June. But this date cannot be confirmed until we have met all the safety requirements needed, as the health and welfare of all participants and supporters is our priority.”

With a total of 92 games left to be played, it has been reported that clubs aim to conclude the season by early August. The plan for football to resume behind closed doors is still awaiting the green light from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and government.

BBC will cover four games, marking the first time that the corporation has shown full Premier League games. Meanwhile, BT has not stated how many games it will be broadcast, and Amazon is yet to confirm whether its games will only be made available to Prime subscribers.
