There is news that Premier League matches could still be played behind closed doors until November as the Government desperately tries to stop a second wave for coronavirus. On same scene, other major sports have voiced their concerns over when they will be able to get spectators safely back inside grounds, with the initially planned return date of October 1 looking bleak.
Meanwhile, Mr Johnson and his ministers acted after the UK’s coronavirus reproduction rate escalated to between one and 1.2 since March. According to Mr Johnson, ‘The cost across the season to us is £200m, which is not sustainable, and we believe all the work that has been done on the safe return to stadiums with the government is a practical and workable solution going forward. ‘Clearly if the tests with 1,000 are successful, we hope to build on that gradually and get back to the October aspiration of playing safely with reduced capacities and showing the nation the way forward.’
