Premier League set to begin on June 17
The Premier League is set to return in less than three weeks, according to a report that says June 17th will see the first two games.
'Project Restart' stepped up this week with players allowed to start contact training in small groups and the next phase of testing also beginning.
According to The Telegraph, the league will begin again on June 17th with Manchester City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United the first two games to be played on that Wednesday.
Those two games were the games in hand the four clubs had over everyone else, with City meant to host the Gunners on that Wednesday before all games were cancelled after Arsenal players had to self-isolate following contact with Olympiakos owner Evangelos Marinakis who tested positive for Covid-19.
After the opening two matches, there will be another game on Friday 19th June, kicking off the first full round of fixtures across the whole weekend.
The Premier League are hoping to finish their season on August 2nd and then the FA Cup final would be held the following weekend, with UEFA hoping to finish the Champions League and Europa League in August as well.
