Russian Premier League Will Return on June 21, per Russian Football Union

The Russian Football Union declared the resumption of the Russian Premier League, which will take place in just over a month.

The Russian Premier League has announced that the remaining matches of the League will be played by June 21, with the intention of concluding the championship by July 22.

“I am glad we are resuming the season at the optimal date for the current situation – in penultimate week of June,” President Sergey Pryadkin said, according to premierliga.ru. “This will allow all players to prepare for their return to the pitch and play the season in a short but reasonable time.”

He said, regarding the improvised health protocols to be followed in football: “Unfortunately, the remaining matches will be held without spectators – restrictions on holding mass events remain in force. But we are sure that the fans will support their teams from home no less sincerely and emotionally.”

Finally, about preparing for the return, he remarked:

“We have a lot of work to do, such as returning players and coaches from abroad and preparing for matches under difficult conditions. We will do our best to ensure the safety of all competitors.
