Premier League Teams Unanimously Agree On Phase Two With Season Return One Step Closer

All 20 Premier League clubs have agreed to return to full-contact training as preparations are stepped up for a return to action in June.

The players, managers, the LMA and the PFA were all consulted before the vote took place, and it has been decided that Phase Two will now go ahead.

It means that every Premier League team can train as a full squad, with tackling allowed, although unnecessary contact will need to be kept to a minimum.



Testing will continue to take place twice a week, but the low number of positive tests (just 8 in 1744) means there is growing confidence that fixtures will resume next month.

Things can change, but it is now expected that the Premier League will vote on when the season will restart. June 12th had been pencilled in as the preferred start date.

However, some clubs do have concerns about the fitness of their players and it is believed that there will be a push to move the restart back by a week to June 19th.
