Following the announcement of the new lockdown in England and Scotland by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday, the Premier League football and other elite professional sports in England will be allowed to continue despite the lockdown restrictions. The six-week lockdown includes closure of primary and secondary schools with effect from Wednesday, recreational centres with some exemptions including "elite sportspeople (and their coaches if necessary, or parents/guardians if they are under 18) -- or those on an official elite sports pathway -- to compete and train".

This will come with frequent testing and provision of bio-secure bubbles to prevent the spread of the virus.
