Hotel lockdown proposed as most likely option for Premier League return

Players being locked in local hotels seems to be the most likely option should football return anytime soon, according to the Mirror.

According to the reports, different Premier League clubs are now in discussions as to how the season should be continued.

The hotel method, where players would shack up at nominated hotels for ‘up to six weeks’ to finish the domestic season, is thought to be the proposed method with legs on it.

The home team would occupy half of the hotel whilst the visiting side occupy a different section for their stay. The away team’s side would then go through a deep clean when they leave.

The Mirror also say that whilst it is preferred to play the remaining games at the teams home stadiums, training grounds and training centre’s are also options.

But players are believed to be planning for a return to training next month and are expecting updates from the Premier League this week as the Government move forward with ‘Project Restart’.

The publication says that the Premier League’s best case scenario is to resume the season on May 18th and play out the remaining games in a six-week window.

All 20 Premier League clubs will meet on Friday and hopefully there will be some clarification then.
