Premier League aims for July end to campaign and 2020/21 season start in August or September – 19th May, 2020

“Given we are trying to get the season away in a slightly truncated situation, we may look at some interesting scheduling options,” says PL chief executive Richard Masters.

The Premier League is still planning for the current campaign to finish in July but the prospect of fans returning to stadiums next season is looking increasingly remote.

Officials are optimistic about the Premier League restarting in June – some three months after football was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic – but there is an acknowledgment that plans may not be sufficiently advanced to ensure a return to action on June 12, as initially hoped.
