Premier League clubs met via video conference on Monday to unanimously vote on to return to small-group training from tomorrow, as the latest stage of "Project Restart" was approved.

This is the first step towards a full Premier League return with teams allowed to train while maintaining social distancing guidelines, though contact training is not yet permitted.

The decision was taken after consulting Premier League players, managers, club doctors, independent experts as well as the Brutish Government.

Testing for the coronavirus has taken place at Premier League clubs over the last few days and will continue throughout the training period.

"Strict medical protocols of the highest standard will ensure everyone returns to training in the safest environment possible," Premier League said in a statement.

"The health and well being of all participants is the Premier League’s priority, and the safe return to training is a step-by-step process," the statement added.

Premier League will continue to hold talks with players, managers, clubs, the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) and League Managers Association (LMA) on protocols for full-contact training.


The last Premier League fixture was played on March 9 with top-flight football being suspended indefinitely on April 3.

Other rules in phase one include players not travelling with anyone to or from training, while the use of public transport and team vehicles is banned.
