Breaking: The 2019/2020 Premier league season will only return when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

The 2019/2020 premier league season resumption date has been pushed further until it is safe to resume from all medical perspectives and Government directives

"It was acknowledged that the Premier League will not resume at the beginning of May – and that the 2019/20 season will only return when it is safe and appropriate to do so," the league announced.


"The restart date is under constant review with all stakeholders, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic develops and we work together through this very challenging time.


"The Premier League is working closely with the whole of professional football in this country, as well as with the Government, public agencies and other relevant stakeholders to ensure the game achieves a collaborative solution. 


"With this, there is a combined objective for all remaining domestic league and cup matches to be played, enabling us to maintain the integrity of each competition.


"However, any return to play will only be with the full support of Government and when medical guidance allows.


"The sporting and financial implications for Premier League clubs as well as for The FA, EFL and National League were considered at today’s meeting."
