Premier League statement: May 27

27 May 2020

After the conclusion of Wednesday morning’s league shareholders meeting, the following statement has been issued by the Premier League.

Premier League Shareholders today voted unanimously to resume contact training - marking another step towards restarting the Premier League season, when safe to do so. 

Squads are now able to train as a group and engage in tackling while minimising any unnecessary close contact. 

The Premier League’s priority is the health and wellbeing of all participants. Strict medical protocols are in place to ensure the training ground is the safest environment possible and players and staff will continue to be tested for COVID-19 twice a week. 

Stage Two of the Return to Training protocol has been agreed following consultation with clubs, players, managers, the PFA, LMA and the Government. Discussions are ongoing as work continues towards resuming the season, when conditions allow.
