The Premier League is set to hold a stakeholders meeting on Friday to discuss what measures can be carried out to try and conclude the 2019/20 season.
The Premier League campaign was initially suspended until April 3 almost three weeks ago before the Football Association [FA] decided to extend that suspension until April 30 due to the severity of the coronavirus outbreak.
Since the FA made that decision on March 20, the UK has been placed in lockdown and the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 have increased on a daily basis.

With that in mind, it is looking increasingly unlikely that the season will resume at the end of April, with a new date set to be decided for the restart of the campaign.
Now, the Premier League will host its latest meeting on Friday to discuss a potential restart date and a whole host of other topics that will be requiring answers from clubs.
Here, we have outlined some of the key questions that you may be asking yourselves as to what will be up for discussion at Friday’s meeting.
When will the meeting take place?
The Premier League’s latest stakeholders meeting will take place on Friday, April 3, and is set to involve all of the league’s stakeholders and will be carried out via a conference call.
What will be on the agenda?
The main purpose of the meeting will be to discuss what the future may hold for the remainder of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
As mentioned above, the campaign, as things stand, is currently on hold until April 30, at the very earliest, with the likelihood of that date being pushed back even further.
The Premier League, as things stand, have no plans to declare the season null and void, as they, like the vast majority of the league’s clubs, want the season to reach a natural conclusion.
