The Premier League has urged the British government to stay committed to its plans for a controlled return of fans into stadiums from October 1. 

The Premier League said in a statement that clubs remain committed to ensuring stadiums will be a safe environment for supporters.

The English top-flight had written to the government, saying clubs face losses of up to 700 million pounds ($906.78 million) if matches continue to be held behind closed doors. 

“Clubs reaffirmed that the continued loss of matchday revenues is having a significant impact across the League as well as on the football pyramid and local and national economies,” the league said.

“Taking into account the high safety standards which will be set by the Premier League in conjunction with relevant public authorities, the League and clubs urge Government to remain committed to the October 1 date for the controlled return of fans to sporting venues.”
