Sport should return in the UK from June 1, at least that’s what was released in the document on Monday (11) by British government guides. In about 60 pages, the plan details the gradual reopening of economic activities in countries under British influence. However, if the number of people infected with the new coronavirus (Covid-19) increases again, stricter restrictions may be imposed again.
Under the proposal, non-essential activities, such as sporting events, could be allowed to reopen from June. Premier League matches can only be played behind closed doors and in accordance with other health and safety protocols. There is a division between the clubs, but a large part defends the return of matches on this date to complete the season and ensure some financial income. Managers should meet on Monday to seal the future of the tournament.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s plan to gradually ease confinement has drawn criticism from other countries (such as Scotland), which intend to follow their own rules. But in its protocol to ease social isolation, the UK says the plan addresses expectations and says it seeks a fair balance between the economy and public health.
