Clubs are pushing to be allowed to play at their usual stadiums rather than in neutral venues as the police wanted. United is asking fans for their co-operation not to travel to any stadiums at which we are playing on matchdays.

Premier League Training Guidelines To Remain Strict

In preparation for training in small groups to resume, Premier League clubs have been:

  • Disinfecting all training equipment including balls at their training grounds.
  • Delivering training kit to players so they can arrive ready to train.
  • Marking out designated parking spaces for players with gaps of three spaces between each car.
  • Allocating players to different groups of four or five in which they will train on designated pitches.
  • Drawing up lists of staggered arrival times for different players.
  • Drawing up lists of club employees who will be allowed at the training ground.

Players are aware of the strict rules which will be in place for phase one training. That means no tackling or spitting and maintaining social distancing from everyone else at all times.
