Premier League statement on contact training

The Premier League has today given the go-ahead for teams to resume contact training.

 

Having returned to training with strict social distancing measures in place last week, this is the latest step towards restarting the Premier League season.

 

Read the full statement below…

 

Premier League Shareholders today voted unanimously to resume contact training, marking another step towards restarting the Premier League season, when safe to do so.

 

Squads are now able to train as a group and engage in tackling while minimising any unnecessary close contact.

 

The Premier League’s priority is the health and wellbeing of all participants.

 

Strict medical protocols are in place to ensure the training ground is the safest environment possible and players and staff will continue to be tested for COVID-19 twice a week.

 

Stage Two of the Return to Training protocol has been agreed following consultation with clubs, players, managers, the PFA, LMA and the Government.

 

Discussions are ongoing as work continues towards resuming the season, when conditions allow.
