The restart date is under constant review with all stakeholders, as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic develops.
What was agreed
The sporting and financial implications for Premier League clubs as well as for The FA, EFL and National League were considered at today’s meeting.
Premier League clubs unanimously agreed to consult their players regarding a combination of conditional reductions and deferrals amounting to 30 per cent of total annual remuneration.
This guidance will be kept under constant review as circumstances change. The League will be in regular contact with the PFA and the union will join a meeting which will be held tomorrow between the League, players and club representatives.
The Athletic report that the Premier League meeting has now finished, with a statement to follow shortly.
Clubs are still hoping to finish the 2019/20 season, but only when completely safe to do so and there are no concrete plans yet.
There is a commitment to consult with players over wage reductions and deferrals.
