The Premier League has been given the go-ahead to resume behind closed doors from June 1 by the United Kingdom government, it was announced on Monday.

Boris Johnson, the U.K. Prime Minister, set out a roadmap to ease lockdown restrictions on Sunday evening and a full report has since been released.

The 50-page document includes "permitting cultural and sporting events to take place behind closed-doors for broadcast, while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact," but this cannot happen before June 1.
