Premier League release updated statement; further meetings next week
Today the English Premier League released a new statement regarding the intention to get the league season underway again, at some point, stating that further meetings are planned.
The plan was originally to recommence the top flight season from 30th April, but that now seems to be a little bit optimistic, as the UK has yet to get even close to its peak during the Covid-19 pandemic.
And while it really isn't all that important during a global crisis and pandemic, entertainment will be something that inspires people, bringing us all together again once this has passed and many fans (particularly LFC) are keen for the season to be completed.
The Premier League's full statement read: "The Premier League, EFL and PFA met today and discussed the growing seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"It was stressed that the thoughts of all three organisations continue to be with everyone affected by the virus.
"The Premier League, EFL and PFA agreed that difficult decisions will have to be taken in order to mitigate the economic impact of the current suspension of professional football in England and agreed to work together to arrive at shared solutions.
"The leagues will not recommence until 30 April at the earliest. They will only do so when it is safe and conditions allow.
"Further meetings will take place next week with a view to formulating a joint plan to deal with the difficult circumstances facing the leagues, their clubs, players, staff and fans."
