After more than two months of being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Premier League is making plans to resume in June.

Plans have been put in place in earnest, with the Premier League yet to play 92 games, as well as the FA Cup.

Training has since begun, and the league is expected to resume in June. However, there is a push for as many games as possible to be broadcast across Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon and possibly the BBC, as the Premier League aims to round up the season by July.

This could mean overlapping games to a minimum, plans are being drawn up for games to kick-off at midday, 2pm, 4pm, 6pm and 8pm on Saturday and Sundays.

We could see five back-to-back games on Saturdays and Sundays, and Champions League-style midweek. Midweek games could be played on Tuesday and Wednesdays with kick-offs at 6pm and 8pm.

However, some managers have expressed dissatisfaction with the June 12 return date, and are pushing towards the end of June, so players can have time to recoup back their fitness after being away for so long.
