UK Government gives green light to resumption of sporting activities from June 1st

The government have published a 50-page document for lifting the coronavirus-enforced lockdown in England which could see the Premier League restart on June 1.


A guide for exiting the lockdown was released on Monday afternoon, with social distancing measures to remain in place as various activities are resumed across the country.


Step two of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's "roadmap" clears the way for the current football season get back underway next month, with all remaining fixtures set to be played behind closed doors until public safety can be guaranteed.


However they were some warnings that were attached to the 50-page document which read:

 "Some venues which are, by design, crowded and where it may prove difficult to enact distancing may still not be able to reopen safely at this point, or may be able to open safely only in part.


"Nevertheless, the Government will wish to open as many businesses and public places as the data and information at the time allows.


"In order to facilitate the fastest possible reopening of these types of higher-risk businesses and public places, the Government will carefully phase and pilot reopenings to test their ability to adopt the new Covid-19 secure guidelines.


"The Government will also monitor carefully the effects of reopening other similar establishments elsewhere in the world, as this happens.


"The Government will establish a series of task forces to work closely with stakeholders in these sectors to develop ways in which they can make these businesses and public places Covid-19 secure."
