Premier League to restart on June 17

Fans of English Premier League soccer were given the news they've been waiting for on Thursday (May 28) that the season will resume on June 17.

According to the BBC, the date has been agreed between all 20 top-flight teams, but the Premier League initially declined a request for comment.

The season will get under way on that Wednesday with two games including

Class="kln">Manchester City against

Class="kln">Arsenal, with a full matchday programme taking place the following weekend.

The Premier League was suspended in the middle of March to protect public health, but players began small group training last week.

Preparations are now stepping up to have contact sessions as they move closer to a return to action.

The wait to get back on the field will have felt particularly long for

Class="kln">Liverpool.

They led the Premier League by 25 points when the League was halted and are just two wins away from securing a first title in 30 years.
