British police voice for multiple Premier League matches at neutral venues
LONDON: British Police want at least six Premier League matches and any Liverpool title clincher to be played at neutral venues when the season resumes in a bid to avoid supporters gathering outside stadiums.
Premier League chiefs have set June 17 as the date for the top flight to restart following the coronavirus delay.
They hope to play the majority of the matches behind closed doors on a home and away basis at clubs’ usual stadiums.
However, police are concerned about the issue of hardcore fans potentially flouting social distancing rules by congregating wherever their team play. – AFP
