Premier League set to resume on June 17

Premier League football is set to return after a three-month shutdown, with top-flight games in England provisionally set to resume on Wednesday, June 17.

Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Manchester City vs Arsenal are scheduled to be the first two games when the Premier League resumes next month before the first full round of matches starting from Friday, June 19.

Those two fixtures were originally postponed due to the EFL Cup Final and the rearranged Manchester City vs Arsenal game was due to be broadcast before the pandemic struck.

Every club will have played 29 PL games after the two matches are held on June 17.

The plan for football to resume behind closed doors awaits the green light from the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and government.

Sky Sports News understands that stage three (the return to play aspect) of the DCMS’ guidance on the return of elite sport is still being finalised.
