Russian Premier League may restart on June 21 or 28


MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Premier League has put forward a plan to resume the season on June 21 or 28 following the suspension of matches during the COVID-19 pandemic, it said on Monday.


No games have been played in the 16-team top-flight since March 16 but the league announced on its website that it has proposed two solutions to clubs for the campaign to re-start with eight rounds of matches remaining. 


One option is a June 21 start with one round of games scheduled per week for the first two matchdays to ease the load on players followed by five matchdays on a twice-weekly basis, including midweek fixtures. The last matchday would then take place a week after the penultimate round of fixtures.


Another option is to re-start the season on June 28 with one round of games scheduled for the first matchday followed by seven rounds of games on a twice-weekly basis.
