The Premier League hands the public specific dates and times for the fixture list in the all-important Project Restart.
Take your phone, PC/laptop, every calendar in your house or at work and save the date, June 17. After another round of negative cases showing zero evidence of COVID-19 clears more of the way for the retake of the 2019-2020 Premier League campaign.
The times, dates, and venues have all been selected and marked done in stone, barring any late slip-ups or hindrances. The return of football kicks off with a bang! This, thanks to some juicy re-openers coming from the first return whistle to what we’ve been waiting for, for months, the final whistle.
Premier League football will return with a double-header on June 17. Further 20 games featuring all 20 clubs in the following 14 days – including Merseyside derby and Tottenham vs Man Utd. A packed weekend featuring seven live games across four days. (Via: Sky Sports)

What to expect from Project Restart
As per Sky, Wednesday will feature the first of two double-headers, with the second one coming the Friday. After the four fixtures and the one break between the two-midweek matchdays, there will be no intervals from Friday to the next Thursday, June 25.
A single Saturday showcase between West Ham vs Wolves, and then to end the first weekend off, a treble of Premier League clashes, which involved an old English favourite between the Merseyside clubs in the Merseyside derby.
Following this, the midweek back-to-back action will be filled with a solo show on the Monday, and then a treble of double-headers till Thursday. This is how the Premier League schedule will run, with one, two, or three games per day until the final day of English football.
It feels good to be back!
