English Premier League Gets Resumption Date


The biggest football league in the world, the English Premier League has finally gotten a resumption date to round up the 2019/2020 season.

According to reports on BBC, the EPL will restart on 17 June with opening games between Aston Villa versus Sheffield United and Manchester City versus Arsenal, while the remaining 90 fixtures will then take place over the course of six weeks.

On Wednesday, clubs unanimously voted to resume contact training, having started non-contact training last week.

The Premier League was suspended on 13 March because of the pandemic and it will be 100 days after Leicester City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa on 9 March that competition will resume, with games now behind closed doors.

Liverpool remain just two wins away from sealing the Premier League title, while should Villa beat Sheffield United in their game in hand, they will move out of the bottom three.

EPL hopes to have the 2019-20 campaign wrapped up by August 2, with the FA Cup final then scheduled to take place a week later on the weekend of August 8-9.
