With football having already returned in Germany, and with the likes of Spain and Italy expected to follow suit, a proposed date for the Premier League’s resumption has now been revealed.

Premier League clubs met on Thursday to hold discussions on the league’s “Project Restart” campaign in order to set a date for the resumption of the 2019/20 season.

According to The Telegraph journalist John Percy, the majority of the clubs have indicated a desire to restart the season on 19 or 20 June 2020, which is a week later than the date that had previously been proposed.

The new timeline would also reportedly see the campaign draw to a conclusion by no later than 1 August, allowing for a short turnaround period for the yet-to-be-scheduled 2020/21 calendar.
