The Premier League has been on lockdown since March 13 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but plans have been put in place for football to resume in June.
After two months of inaction, the league is about to resume albeit behind closed doors, as the Premier League has put safety measures in place to keep players and staff protected from contacting or spreading the virus.
The Premier League has made plans to kick off on June 17, but despite the plans it was still dependent on a final confirmation from the UK government.
The UK Government has now authorised the return of competitive sport in June.
Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden confirmed football resumption as he said: “I can now make it official: football is coming back.”
He continued: “For more than two months after sport stopped and after weeks of round-the-clock discussions with medical experts and professional sports bodies, I’m delighted to announce today that the Government has published guidance which allows competitive sport to resume behind closed doors from Monday at the earliest.
“Football, tennis, horse racing, Formula One, cricket, golf, rugby, snooker and others are all set to return to our screens shortly.”
