Premier League clubs can schedule friendlies ahead of the resumption

Clubs have been given the go-ahead to take part in friendly matches ahead of the planned resumption of the Premier League.

But venues must be no more than 90 minutes away and players must travel in their own cars to and from fixtures while wearing the kit they will play in.

PGMOL referees and assistants are yet to be tested for Covid-19 so, for now, club coaching staff will referee matches.

It’s hoped that the country’s top referees will be available to officiate in the week before the planned return to match action on June 17.

If held at a stadium, players will enter via the players’ entrance and walk straight onto the pitch, before warming up. Dressing rooms will not be used.
