A key vote is set to made on May 8 as talks continue over how the Premier League can finish the 2019/20 season.
As reported by ESPN, a four-hour video conference call involving all 20 Premier League clubs took place on Friday, with the emphasis on trying to find a way for the division to reach its natural conclusion.
English football has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, and we are yet to have an indication of how and when the Premier League will return.
But various ways of completing the current campaign are being discussed by clubs as they aim to come to a solution that everyone can agree upon.
According to the ESPN report, government instruction is important to take the next step in planning football’s return.
Many have proposed the idea of finishing the remaining games behind closed doors at neutral venues where there is less risk of spreading the virus.
However, this idea was opposed by a number of clubs in Friday’s meeting due to concerns about integrity of competition with a lack of home advantage.
Regardless, it appears May 8 could be a key date in the diaries where we may finally find out a little more on any proposed plans being made.
