The Premier League has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but there have been no final decision as to when the league will resume.

However, the Premier League is making plans for the league to resume by June, with games to be played behind closed doors.

Meanwhile, the Premier League and other European leagues have been given until May 25 by UEFA to provide plans to restart their season.

The Dutch league has cancelled its current season after the government announced that there will be no football activities until August.

UEFA has also asked associations, such as the Dutch FA, to “explain the special circumstances justifying such premature termination” by the same deadline, in relation to the clubs it wants to compete in Europe next season.

According to a report on Sky Sports, It has been agreed that associations may cancel their season only if governments prevent sporting events from taking place or ‘insurmountable economic problems’ risk the ‘long-term financial stability’ of domestic competitions and clubs.

Also, UEFA’s Executive Committee will hold its next conference call on May 27, where it intends to reach a decision over whether this season’s European competitions can be completed in August.

The Premier League is set to hold further talks this week regarding the completion of the season.
