The Premier League’s smiling ahead of June 17. Another round of testing completed and this time all were found negative, showing England is 100% on route to rebooting the 2019-2020 campaign.

If you want to top this news just announce English football will be brought back sooner than the 17th of June. Otherwise, for now, this shows the intense measures taken is working well. Plan and execute effectively.

Since running through the phases of PR (Project Restart), testing has been key to meet or bring forward the deadlines of outdoor team training under social distancing rules. Following this, it was a quick change from that into contact training. Showing even stronger signs this is working to a T.
