The start date for England’s top men’s soccer league will be around one month later than it normally would be due to the coronavirus-related disruptions to the sports calendar.
The 2019-20 season will conclude Sunday, roughly two months later than it originally was scheduled to end. Newly crowned champion Liverpool will begin its title defense just seven-plus weeks after receiving the Premier League trophy.
To say this offseason will be short is a massive understatement, but that’s the reality of sports in 2020.
