UK Government approves closed door restart of EPL
The English Premier League will be allowed to resume the 2019-20 season from June 1 amid the COVID-19 pandemic, according to ESPN.
A report Monday from UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson states that “cultural and sporting events [can] take place behind closed doors for broadcast, while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact.”
That permits the league to begin without spectators starting in June.
The Premier League’s clubs will vote on an official return within the next few days
