Premier League Soccer To Restart On June 17
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Premier League’s official broadcasters say the competition will restart on June 17.
The BBC and Sky Sports say there will be a doubleheader on that day with Manchester City playing Arsenal and Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United.
Playing those make-up games on a Wednesday will ensure the 30th round can be contested the following weekend.
The last match was played on March 9 before the competition was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Squads were only allowed to restart practice sessions in small groups last week but contact and tackling is now allowed between players.
KSL Sports in conjunction with NBC will broadcast the best available Premier League games upon the league’s return.
Play will resume with two games on June 17. Manchester City will take on Arsenal while Sheffield United will try to best Aston Villa.
All 20 Premier League teams will have played 29 games following the conclusion of the two games mentioned above.
The remaining schedule, which will resume on June 19, is still unknown. However, KSL 5 TV will have access to the broadcast rights of the best Premier League games.
Furthermore, the game schedule has been altered with the intention to play more games throughout the week. Due to the extended break caused by the coronavirus, the league has adopted a new game schedule that will fast track the remaining 92 fixtures remaining.
