COVID-19: EPL clubs okay contact training ahead of season restart

All 20 Premier League clubs have voted unanimously to approve a return to contact training, in another significant step towards the resumption of the season.

The English league made this disclosure in an official statement on Wednesday.

The statement read: “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.”

Furthermore, the statement added that those discussions are scheduled to continue on Thursday, when issues including a restart date, television scheduling and contingency plans if the season has to be curtailed, will be discussed.
