After months of lockdown and cancellation owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, Premier League football finally has a return date.

All clubs were part of a video conference on Thursday and unanimously agreed that the matches will resume in mid-June.

The fixtures will first focus on finishing up the pending game week that was disrupted when the lockdown was first put in place back in mid-March.

As such, June 17 will see Manchester City vs Arsenal and Aston Villa vs Sheffield United take place. Likewise, the important clash of Tottenham vs Manchester United could also occur on June 19, pending confirmation.

The following weekend until June 21 will see a full list of fixtures take place as well.

A number of Premier League fans took to Twitter to react to the long-awaited announcement.


The Bundesliga is already back in full-fledge, playing games behind closed doors and in front of empty stadiums while the Serie A is also mulling over a return.

With a significant chunk of fixtures remaining to take place, it will be intriguing to see how the games are spaced apart going forward.

The games ahead is likely going to see Liverpool convert their impressive lead into an assured Premier League title while key relegation and European spots will also be put to rest after weeks of unease and speculation.
