Soccer fans in the United Kingdom are going to have wait another few weeks at minimum for professional soccer to resume, including the Premier League.

A documented released by the English government confirmed that sports leagues such as the country’s top-tier soccer association will not be a lot of resume play until June 1st at the very earliest.

Here is an excerpt from the document:

“To aid planning. the government’s current aim is that the second step will be made no earlier than Monday 1 June, subject to these conditions being satisfied…Organizations should prepare accordingly.”

It should also be noted that fans will not be allowed to attend games, and it will be that way for an indefinite period of time.
