The Bundesliga is getting ready to return this weekend, which is a huge win for soccer fans, and the English Premier League may not be far behind.
Yesterday, the United Kingdom’s government announced plans for “Project Restart” as the country begins opening up following the COVID-19 pandemic, and those plans will permit the EPL to resume next month.
  • Play could start as early as June 1 in empty stadiums
  • EPL clubs met on Monday to discuss their restart plans and the league says there is an agreement to resume play
  • The league has 92 matches remaining to complete the year’s schedule
  • No specific date has been set for a return, though the EPL was initially targeting a June 8 restart prior to clearance
  • Premier League: “Following today’s meeting of Shareholders, Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters has said the 20 clubs are united in their desire to get the 2019-20 season back up and running and that players and managers will have an important role in that return”
We’re still waiting for most of our sports to return here in North America but at least our international viewing options are starting to stack up a little bit. In a few weeks we may have UFC, NASCAR, KBO, Bundesliga and EPL all on the schedule, which is a hell of a lot better than nothing.
Personally, EPL mornings have been sorely missed during all this and I can’t wait to have them back in my life. As a big Arsenal fan, it’s extremely hard to replicate the incredible joy of waking up on a weekend morning and putting on a pot of coffee while I sit down to watch my stupid soccer team find a way to ruin my entire day before noon.
