BREAKING: EPL to resume on June 17

The Premier League season will resume on June 17,  Standard News can authoritatively report.

Manchester City versus Arsenal will be one of the first matches to be played.

Aston Villa’s home clash with Sheffield United will also be played the same day to mark the return of the English top flight.

Those two fixtures were originally postponed due to the EFL Cup Final but were unable to be played before the COVID-19 pandemic.

A full fixture list will then be played on the weekend of June 19 to 21, with the agreement coming after Premier League clubs met on Thursday to continue discussions over ‘Project Restart.

Every club will have played 29 PL games after the two matches are held on June 17.

Football in England has been suspended since March 13 following an emergency meeting between the Premier League, Football Association, the English Football League, and the Women's Super League.

Thursday's conference call was the second meeting of Premier League clubs in the last two days after they unanimously agreed to resume contact training.
