Premier League coronavirus Project Restart

PFA chief Gordon Taylor claims that one idea being proposed by the Premier League’s Project Restart is that “games possibly not being the full 45 minutes each way”.

A return to Premier League action in June is currently on the cards, ending what will have been a three-month absence of action for the English top flight.

The UK is on lockdown until at least May 7 but the Premier League is working on its ‘Project Restart’ to get the 2019-20 season finished, while the English Football League board and its clubs are also holding meetings on a regular basis.

Matt Lawton wrote at the end of April in The Times that the Premier League ‘has devised “Project Restart”, a plan for the season to resume on June 8 behind closed doors at “approved stadiums”, which it unveiled to its clubs at a meeting on April 17.’

And now BBC Sport editor Dan Roan has outlined some of Taylor’s interview on BBC Radio 4 in a tweet, with the PFA chief claiming that one proposal under Project Restart is that games might not last 45 minutes each way.
