The Wembley Stadium could become a venue for the rest of the Premier League season. The English Football Association (FA) has offered London’s Wembley Stadium and St George’s Park in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire as neutral venues for the end of the Premier League season.
This was reported by the English daily newspaper “The Times”. After the season was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, the FA’s preferred plan is to host the remaining matches without spectators. This would mean that the two arenas could possibly host several matches on the same day.
According to a news report, the FA considers finishing the current season within six weeks from 1 June. This would allow enough time for a break and preparation until the planned start of the new season on 8 August. Most clubs are still missing nine games, some clubs ten. League leaders Liverpool FC are close to winning the title with coach Jürgen Klopp.
The break in England will initially last until 30 April. The goal is a regular end of the season, with ghost games considered a likely option.
