Premier League clubs push for end of June decision

If the proposal to settle the season by 30 June is put to a vote, the Premier League would require a 14-club majority to approve any decision.

Should it go through, the chances of completing a 38-game schedule would appear distinctly remote. Most teams have nine games left to play while four – Manchester City, Sheffield United, Arsenal and Aston Villa – must play 10. While clubs in Germany have returned to training, that scenario is still some way off in England.

Then there would be the issue of getting players match-fit ahead of what, even if the league was cleared to resume behind closed doors at the start of June, would be an intense schedule.

  1. Worth a watch on YouTube Keys and Gray episode 15 recorded live on April the 14th, talking to David Moyes about training and getting ready if football does start up again while the Lockdown is on and some more interesting stuff!!! Keeping the faith C.O.Y.I 👍⚒⚒⚒ stay safe

  2. As it stands there is no guarantee that next season will happen in the current format so the PL are just keeping their options open. It’s all about money. Cricket are hoping to play T20 and hundred tournaments late in summer because of the TV revenue, county championship won’t happen.
