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.”

June 1st, which is an absolute best case scenario, can only be fulfilled if there is no increase in coronavirus cases in the country by that deadline.

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.

Some devastating news coming out of the hockey world.

Walter Gretzky, the father of legendary NHLer Wayne Gretzky, has died after a prolonged battle with Parkinson’s disease. He was 82 at the time of his death.

“It’s with deep sadness that Janet and I share the news of the passing of my dad…He bravely battled Parkinson’s and other health issues these last few years, but he never let it get him down” said Wayne Gretzky.

“For me, he was the reason I fell in love with the game of hockey. He inspired me to be the best I could be not just in the game of hockey, but in life.”

Known to everyone as Canada’s Hockey Dad, Walter was more than just Wayne’s father. He was inspirational to young hockey players and gave back to the game in many ways, including charitable causes.

“Walter’s passion for the game and for teaching it to young players transcended place, status and skill level,” said NHL commissioner Wayne Gretzky.

“During the two decades since Wayne retired, Walter could always be found at a rink, sharing the game with players and fans at all levels. Quietly and humbly, Walter dedicated so much of his time to countless charities with little fanfare but with a deep commitment to improving the lives of so many — particularly children.”
