English Premier League clubs will resume training in small-group starting Tuesday

All 20 English Premier League clubs on Monday voted unanimously to return to small-group training beginning on Tuesday.
The vote, which took place following a meeting of shareholders, is the first step towards restarting the 2019-20 season.
The protocol is widely reported to include training in groups of no more than five players, getting changed at home and driving to the training ground on their own.
“Step One of the Return to Training Protocol enables squads to train while maintaining social distancing. Contact training is not yet permitted,” the Premier League said in a statement.

“This first stage has been agreed in consultation with players, managers, Premier League club doctors, independent experts and the Government,” the statement read.

The Premier League told CNN on Friday that June 12 is the earliest, hypothetical start date for the resumption of play.
All professional football in England is currently suspended indefinitely.
