New training ground rules and match regulations will come in for Leicester City and their Premier League rivals on Monday.
A comeback for Premier League football is well in motion now, with the government along with sports bosses agreeing on a return to training. Then, most likely, a June completion for 2019/20 at Monday’s conference.
The footballing community learned last week of proposals to group train whilst wearing protective masks. And to keep their supercars clean, too, so not to spread the coronavirus.
Those two aspects may sound peculiar, but anything that will help keep athletes safe as well as accelerate a return of competitive sport is fine by us.
In addition to that fresh rule there are other stipulations, one being five substitutions per match. Per Sky Sports we know that the International Football Association Board has passed that notion. This alteration is supposedly only temporary in order to assist the transition back to normality – kind of. VAR might be removed in the Premier League, too.
A June return for the premiership is looking a lot more feasible than it did only a few days ago. However, some journalists have questioned the probable forthcoming decision from the chiefs, with health obviously the number one priority. Behind closed doors matches will surely provide safety.
On Sunday the government is due to announce reduced stringency to their coronavirus lockdown rules. These new or altered measures will more than likely affect Leicester City and the English top-flight project restart announcement the following day.
