The English Premier League, EPL is set to open as they devise a project called “Project Restart“. England Premier league governing body has advised all clubs to call on their players that have moved back home after the outbreak of the virus and the halt of the league and other competitions.
The “Project Restart” will allow the EPL and other competition within England get back on track with strict measures being put in place to guide the projects. The matches will be played in closed doors i.e no fans are allowed to come watch the match.
So as the project closes in, the governing body of EPL has written to all clubs in England to call back their player to resume back to training, and as they are coming in, they would be forced to practice 2 weeks of self-isolation which is in accordance with government policies and guidelines.
The Medical reps of each England EPL club had an online gathering to discuss the things that need to be put in place before the “project Restart” starts in June.
According to a report on Independent, EPL’s medical adviser, Mark Gillett, with Charlotte Cowie (Football Association’s head of medicine) are known to be part of a group of medical officials from sports governing bodies, and they are to meet on a weekly basis in a talk led by the Department of Culture, Sport, Media, and Digital.
A spokesperson from Public Health England will also be present and the Professional Footballers’ Association has also been planning and having a discussion over safety and the deputy chief executive, Bobby Barnes said;
“We have reiterated that players are not just footballers but partners, fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters who share the same health concerns as everyone else during this pandemic.
“We have been assured of the intentions of all that there would be no resumption unless guarantees of safety could be given to the players. The overriding principle for all parties is the health and safety of all participants on and off the field and of course the wider public.”
