Some huge news from the world of football on Monday. 

The Premier League has been given the green light to get things going again on June 1. 

The news comes just under 24 hours after Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed all his plans to ease lockdown. 

Part of Johnson's plan includes  "permitting cultural and sporting events to take place behind closed-doors for broadcast, while avoiding the risk of large-scale social contact,". 

Starting on June 1 of course. 

No fans will be allowed at the games because of the pandemic and fans "may only be fully possible significantly later depending on the reduction in numbers of infections,".

"Some venues which are, by design, crowded and where it may prove difficult to enact distancing may still not be able to reopen safely at this point, or may be able to open safely only in part."

Premier League clubs still need to vote on the idea of resuming the season.

It would take a "yes" vote from at least 14 out of the 20 clubs to get things going again and the Premier League won't comment on the situation at the moment.
