EPL Clubs Agree To Resume Contact Training

English Premier League (EPL) clubs have voted to resume contact training following a vote to that effect.

The decision came after consultation with clubs, players, managers, the Professional Foorball Association (PFA), the League Managers Association ( LMA) and the government.

EPL was suspended in March this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Now, a statement from the EPL says players will be able to “train as a group and engage in tackling while minimising unnecessary close contact,” as discussions continue on plans to resume the season the “conditions allow.”

It is also agreed that EPL players and staff will continue to be tested twice a week for coronavirus.

Eight persons have so far tested positive after 1,744 tests across the league.

Last week Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said the league was “as confident as we can be” about resuming the season in June, with 92 fixtures still to play.

Clubs started non-contact training last week for the first time since the Premier League was suspended on 13th March, 2020.
