#PremierLeagueStories – #PL CEO #RichardMasters Reveals Discussions that took place in the Meeting with Shareholders

Premier League Musuem
Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters has revealed what was on agenda during Monday’s Premier League Shareholder’s meeting. The topics included curtailing the season, restarting the matches behind closed doors and neutral venues. He also stressed on the fact that nothing was decided yet and it was an “ongoing dialogue”

Richard Masters said “It was the first time we discussed curtailment – it’s still our aim to finish the season obviously but it’s important to discuss all the options with our clubs,” he said. The contents of that discussion have to remain confidential. What I can say is that all of the talk was about finishing the season. No conclusions were reached on any other models. Those are future conversations we may need to have. It is an ongoing dialogue and obviously since COVID-19 became an issue we’ve been talking to the authorities about the conditions in which we could get the Premier League back up and running and taking all that advice on board. But it is an ongoing dialogue. There is not much I can say about that, other than we are in contact with the authorities and listening to that advice while also representing club views in those discussions. We have protocols created and reviewed, we have a testing company appointed, but the important consultation with players and managers is the next step, nothing has been agreed and nothing will be agreed until we have spoken to both the managers and the players, What was agreed is that players can extend their contracts beyond June 30 until the end of the season but it must be agreed by both parties and a later date can be scheduled for that; no later than June 23″
