After a 3-month break, the English Premier League is finally set to return to the pitch … with all clubs agreeing to continue the season on June 17, according to the BBC.
The plan is to pick things back up with fan-less games next month, starting with Aston Villa vs. Sheffield United and Manchester City vs. Arsenal.
The season has been suspended since March 13 due to COVID-19 … and the league now has 92 match-ups to make up.
FYI — there have reportedly been 12 positive coronavirus results within the league out of 2,752 administered tests … and the plan is to continue testing all players and staff twice a week.
According to the BBC, if any player were to test positive for COVID-19 after the season picks up, he must self-isolate for 7 days.
The decision to resume games comes one week after clubs resumed non-contact training … and one day after agreeing to resume contact workouts.
Sports are slowly starting to come back … with the UFC, pro wrestling and golf all hosting fan-less events.
