Government green light on behind closed doors sport as authorities debate football future
The Government has paved the way for professional sport to take place behind closed doors from June 1.
Included in ‘step two’ of how England will come out of lockdown amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Government has said that cultural and sporting events will be permitted to take place behind closed doors for broadcast.
No events will be permitted before the start of June and all is subject to the country ‘staying on top of the virus'.
The Government has today published a 50-page document illustrating how England will begin to ease lockdown measures in what could be a significant week for football.
The Premier League clubs are holding a series of meetings over the next 48 hours while those in the EFL are also scheduled for discussions later in the week.
Town’s players could return to training on Monday, May 18 having not kicked a ball in first-team action for over two months.
