The Premier League has postponed the decisive match to restart the football competition until next week. They are currently preparing for a statement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson due this Sunday.
The clubs were to organize on Friday and vote on whether to continue the plan to liven up the season. However, it is likely that this meeting will take place no earlier than Monday after the statement of the local prime minister. Leading clubs and stakeholders were expected to hold a meeting on Friday. Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled the next phase of guidelines for the United Kingdom on Thursday. He also asked the club leadership to postpone their meetings for another week.
The meeting will include a vote on whether to continue the restart plans. At least six clubs disagree with proposals to play in neutral venues. To resume matches, the Premier League will need 14 votes to start the league on June 12th. While the potential delay has been met with frustration, the obstacle is not expected to affect the proposed resumption date of the 12 June season.
