You probably already noticed that the pandemic is slowly receding. Everything is back to normal, and football is no exception. For example, the date of the return of the Premier League has recently become known. Read more about this below.

The 24th round of the league will be held on June 28, and the 25th – on June 1. It turns out that teams are given 2 days to rest between masts and prepare. Then the schedule will be just as tight.

But the last two teams from the league will move to the lower level of the division. As the Executive Committee of the RFU promises, the teams will play games at their stadiums. Therefore, most of the games will be held in Moscow. The city authorities will have to make great efforts to make fights as safe as possible for athletes and other participants in tournaments. Interestingly, in the same Brazil, where the number of cases is higher than in Russia, games and training will not resume soon. But in America, the opposite is true – in New York, the players are already training with might and main.
