Premier League players and coaches will not have to wear a veil during the match. .

Players will still have to follow certain rules, such as the ban on spitting, the ban on cleaning their noses and the specified distance at goal celebrations. Unlike the Bundesliga, where the veil was not allowed to be worn only on the court, Premier League players can move without protection in other areas of the stadium. This rule does not only apply to club members such as doctors and physiotherapists.


At Thursday's club meeting, the scope of medical protocols for the league restart was agreed.

The stadiums will be under fire from strict restrictions, which will divide all areas and communication corridors into security zones with regulated access. The maximum number of people allowed in the stadium is 300, of which in the so-called The "red zone" can accommodate a maximum of 110 people consisting of players and club staff.

The protocol also contains information on disinfection. Precise procedures and timings are specified. Corner flags, goals, balls will be regularly disinfected before, during and after the match.

The Premier League has been suspended since March 13, and the first game after a three-month break will take place on June 17 between Aston Villa and Sheffield United. Only one positive case was identified in the last round of coronavirus testing.
