A six-week window needed to finish Premier League season

According to various press reports the Premier League could face a 750 million pounds legal battle attached to broadcaster fees and loss of earnings should the championship fail to be concluded before the start of the new season. That’s why the league needs a six-week window to play the remaining matches for the league and the FA Cup.

The plan is to resume the current football season on 1st of June and matches will be played behind closed doors and will require Public Health UK to sign-off on its schedule, allowing for emergency services to attend matches. UK media reported that the Premier League may breach its £3 billion broadcasting contract with Sky Sports and BT Sport should it fail to conclude season 2019/2020 proceedings and critical meetings will be held this week among English football stakeholders to discuss further scheduling contingencies and COVID-19 developments.
