The Premier League clubs voted “unanimously” on Wednesday for the return of training sessions with contact, in a further step towards the return of the championship.

The 20 clubs that make up the league met on Wednesday by videoconference to vote to go to phase 2 of training, after receiving the go-ahead from the British government a few days ago. In this scenario, ground level entrances (prohibited until now) will be allowed, although it is recommended that “any unnecessary contact be minimized”.

“The Premier League’s priority is the health and well-being of all participants. Strict medical protocols have been put in place to ensure that the training camp is the safest place possible, “the Premier said in a statement.

Players will continue to test twice a week. This Monday the first round was held and it is expected that the results will be known throughout the afternoon of this Wednesday. In those carried out last week, of the total of 1,750 people tested, only eight tested positive.

The entrance to this second phase of training has been agreed after talks with the clubs, the players, the coaches, the PFA (Players Association) and the Government.

This Thursday, the entities involved in the championship will meet again to discuss the next steps of the project to restart the league. Optimism over the satisfactory return of the Bundesliga and the few cases registered after the analyzes have made it easier to confirm a definitive date for the return of the Premier later this week.
