Some good news has arrived for the suffering English Premier League fans who miss watching their club play live more than anything. There appears to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
Despite the status of the 2019-20 season being unclear at this point, with the league still in discussions on what to do, it looks like there's a chance teams' supporters will be able to sing in the stands come this fall.
Report: Premier League fans could return to stadiums in October as part of UK government plans https://t.co/jy86r2u3iV— NBC Sports Soccer (@NBCSportsSoccer) May 7, 2020
This is the news we've not only been waiting for, but hoping for. Elsewhere around the world, including the NBA in the USA, there's been talks about banning fans from entering stadiums throughout the rest of 2020.
However, the EPL has its eyes set on letting folks inside Anfield, Old Trafford, Etihad Stadium, Stamford Bridge and more in the coming months.
Come May 11, the next Premier League meeting will be held, where there will be further discussions to see if play can be resumed for this campaign. Across the board, the clubs want to get back to action, but only if if's safe to do so. The last thing anyone wants is to rush back play, only for players/coaches to get sick.
Later this year, though, it's expected that more steps toward normalcy will be taking place in the EPL. Chief among them will be the players back on the pitch, and potentially come October, the fans back in the seats.
