Premier League Plan Could See League Finished In 35 Days

Premier League Plan Could See League Finished In 35 Days

The Premier League could be finished in a 'frantic' five week period, with clubs playing twice a week, whenever the league returns from its current suspension.

There's been quite a few theories about how the Premier League would get finished when the current hiatus is ended, whenever that might be, including one crazy plan about playing the games in China.

The latest plan, according to The Telegraph, would see the league be completed in just 35 days, hopefully from the beginning of June, with clubs playing roughly two games a week for five weeks to get things done, behind closed doors.

There has been talk of games happening at neutral venues, with Wembley and St George's Park both mooted as potential venue, but the latest report claims the hope is for club's to play games at their own grounds.

With most teams having nine games to play, and some having 10, it would take at least five weeks to get through the games, though there wouldn't be much time for rest for players and there's still FA Cup and European games to play.

The discussions have also begun about whether or not all the games could be televised, with no fans being able to get in the grounds, and UEFA have lifted the ban on 3pm Saturday games being shown.

Clubs in England will be taking an interested look at Germany, where clubs have allowed players to return to training in groups no bigger than five.

Those restrictions have led managers to need to be clever with drills, and who is in each group training together, and could be the start to the Bundesliga getting back going again next month.

The Premier League isn't in line to be back underway in May but there is hope that similar training could happen next month and football gets back underway in June.

Despite some optimism over when and how the league could return in the future there is reportedly fears that there may be no fans allowed into games as late as November, when next season has hopefully got underway.

Clubs will hope to get the season finished in some manner before the next one can start in order to get around the issues of relegation, European qualification and even title winners, even though Liverpool need just two more wins to secure their first in 30 years.

How do you think the league should finish? Let us know in the comments.
