LONDON (ENGLAND) – The Premier League's plan to complete the season is to play the 92 games left in 8-10 stadiums, on neutral ground and behind closed doors, guaranteeing 40,000 tests for the coronavirus.
This is what the British clubs filtered after a conference call on the 'Restart Project' held on Friday.
A dozen stages are to be identified with the Sports Grounds Safety Authority's health certification and the public security forces' ok.
Many unknowns, because in addition to the go-ahead from the government, the agreement of all the clubs is needed.
The goal indicated in recent days is to resume training by May 18 and the championship by June 8, with tests for all 48 hours before returning to work and then twice a week.
"The Premier League wants to end the season in safe conditions, but it will only recover with the full support of the government and after hearing the opinion of doctors, players and coaches," assured the 20 clubs.
"I know how much England dreams of the return of sport," tweeted Secretary of Culture Oliver Dowden after meeting with representatives of football, rugby, cricket and other disciplines, "today we kicked off the planning".
The government has put to work a task force on the resumption of professional sport.
For the start, even only for training, the OK of the experts who follow the curve of the epidemic in Great Britain will be needed (source AGI).
