The United Kingdom is one of the countries that has returned to the confinement phase due to the advance of the coronavirus. Boris Johnson has announced that the country returns to a phase of closure similar to that experienced in March, although with nuances.
Among other things that will continue is the Premier League. Football is a religion in the British world, and although they have been left without access to stadiums, many fans have immediately wondered what would happen to the football season in this situation.
Johnson has been clear: “I say yes to the Premier League.” This decision not only affects the English league, but also European competitions such as the Champions League and the Europa League, or the official Nations League matches scheduled for November.

Johnson was optimistic that it is not necessary to cancel sports competitions already underway, but warns that they do not rule out anything. “I am optimistic, but we will be governed by what science says,” he explained.
