The Sun reported last week that Premier League action could be back in a matter of weeks after the UK government decided that resuming live sport was key to boosting the morale of the nation.
The Times have now revealed that a tentative date has been agreed upon by clubs on when the league can resume.
It is said that Premier League chiefs have drawn up a plan called ‘Project Restart’ which could see matches played behind closed doors as soon as June 8.
While it is said that clubs prefer to play their games at their respective stadiums, it is understood that they could be convinced to play at their respective training grounds or neutral venues such as St George’s Park.
This would also allow for clubs to put their players through a three-week pre-season before the league is ready to resume.
The government has reportedly ruled that football players are employees who can’t do they work properly at home thus giving clubs permission to resume training schedules.

If we are to somehow finish the season, then it will have to resume by early June at the latest. Pushing it back any further will have a knock-on effect on next season’s scheduling as well as the Euros next summer. Let’s hope the government gives the green light for ‘Project Restart’.
