Sporting events in England will resume from Monday, June 1, without spectators and subject to all necessary measures.

The decision directly concerns professional football. The Premier League is scheduled to restart on June 17.

Horse racing and snooker competitions are already due to take place this Monday.

Athletes and staff must arrive at the bases independently and, if possible, by private transport. Before entering the base, it is mandatory to check for symptoms of coronavirus.

In cases where social distance cannot be maintained, risks must be assessed and mitigated. At the same time, the government is not yet ready to resume non-professional sports, which deprives ordinary citizens of the opportunity to play cricket and football in the Park.

However, the government will ease the measures slightly from Monday and allow groups of six people to play sports on the street if they are 2 meters apart from each other.

Lineker on easing the quarantine in England: “You can play cricket with your family in a gardening shop, but not on the bus?»

Former England striker Gary Lineker shared his opinion on the new recommendations of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic.

Johnson reported the easing of isolation measures from next Wednesday. He explained that the British can be more outdoors, sunbathe, travel by car, and play sports without restrictions, including team sports, but on the condition that only people who live together will play with each other.

The Prime Minister also said that primary schools will be able to open from June 1, and stores will also start opening in stages.

“Spent the night digesting the new rules. I think I understood them: we can play cricket with close family members in the gardening shop after work, but it’s preferable not to do it on the bus. Is this close to the point?» Lineker joked on Twitter.

The resumption of the NPL is scheduled for June 12 or 13, and the teams will start training from may 18.
