‘What A Joke’ ‘Top Flight Football Out Of Touch With Reality’ City Fans Question Premier League Plans To Return ‘Within Weeks’

Plans are being put in place to stage Premier League matches behind closed doors “within weeks,” according to Sky News.

The news channel claims Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden has been locked in discussions with the FA, Premier League and EFL about the potential for games to be played.

Talks are also ongoing with Public Health England with certain assurances needed about how and when football can be resumed. City fans on Twitter don’t think football should return without full stadiums:

It is believed the government want to have football back on the TV screens as soon as possible to increase morale, but there are numerous logistical challenges to overcome as well.

Even behind closed doors, 200-300 people are needed to be at each game, and without social distancing rules being relaxed, it does seem exceptions will have to be made, with tests needed before anyone enters the venues.

Of course, having football with no fans is not ideal, and there will be many that feel the game is being sacrificed for money.
