Premier League Clubs To Play At Neutral Grounds If Plans Are Approved By Government

Premier League Clubs To Play At Neutral Grounds If Plans Are Approved By Government

Premier League clubs have reportedly agreed to play at neutral grounds to complete the 2019/20 season once the government approves the plans by the football authorities.

Clubs met on a video call on Friday and agreed to use 'eight to ten neutral stadiums' to finish the current season which has been affected by the coronavirus crisis.

They confirmed their target of starting training from May 18 with the first set of Premier League fixtures scheduled for June 12.

The grounds will be confirmed in the coming weeks. But concerns have been expressed about using congested urban areas which means Liverpool's Anfield and Chelsea's Stamford Bridge have been ruled out, according to reports.

Further reports claim the strongest candidates for the eight stadiums in England's top flight include Old Trafford, King Power Stadium and Emirates Stadium, among others.

Wembley Stadium and St George's Park are believed to have been discounted as options.

Clubs will not play in their own stadium to maintain a degree of neutrality. It also means that when Liverpool eventually claim the title it will be away from Anfield.
