The Premier League will resume on Wednesday 17 June, it has been confirmed this afternoon.
Positive talks took place between the division’s 20 clubs earlier today, leading to the decision that elite football will resume from next month.
Manchester City will host Arsenal and Aston Villa will square off against Sheffield United in the first pair of matches being played since March (taking all teams up to 29 games played).
The first full set of Premier League fixtures will kick off on Saturday 20 June.
The outbreak of COVID-19 forced British football to a halt two months ago, plunging the 2019/20 season into doubt.
There are 92 Premier League games left to play in total, all of which are likely to kick-off behind closed doors.
Contact training is being played across grounds, with all players and staff tested twice a week.
Anyone who records a positive test will be required to isolate for seven days.
