Premier League clubs have agreed to resume fixtures in the third week of June, 17th to be precise after all 20 top-flight clubs voted unanimously on Wednesday for a return to contact training.
The clubs convened again on Thursday to discuss other key issues surrounding “Project Restart”, including the use of home or neutral venues, a potential £340million rebate for TV rights holders, and contingency plans to end the season should it prove necessary.
Four teams – Man City, Arsenal, Sheffield United and Aston Villa – still have outstanding fixtures to play, and their matches are set to take place on the evening of Wednesday, June 17.
While talks are still taking place, Standard Sport reports that a provisional agreement has been struck with Arsenal travelling to the Etihad to face champions City, while Villa host the Blades.
Those four teams will then be back in action along with the other 16 sides on the weekend of June 19-21 for gameweek 29 of the season.
