  8. Sport returns: From Monday 1 June competitive sport allowed behind closed doors Domestic competitive sport behind closed doors will be allowed from Monday, the UK government says. The 'phase three' guidance paves the way for live sport to return on 1 June for the first time since mid-March. It is up to individual sports to assess the risk, and consult athletes, coaches and support staff. Horse racing and snooker will each resume competitive action on Monday, while the Premier League is due to restart on 17 June. Clubs in England's top flight returned to 'phase two' contact training on 25 May. On Saturday, the Premier League confirmed that no players or staff tested positive from the latest batch of 1,130 coronavirus tests conducted on Thursday and Friday. So far, 12 people have tested positive from 3,882 tests across the league. "The wait is over. Live British sport will shortly be back on in safe and carefully controlled environments," said the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, Oliver Dowden. Return of racing 'will lift the nation's spirits' - BHA chief Rust Brendan Rodgers: Leicester City manager reveals he had coronavirus Sheffield United are 'ready to play now' - Norwood "This guidance provides the safe framework for sports to resume competitions behind closed doors. It is now up to individual sports to confirm they can meet these protocols and decide when it's right for them to restart." Speaking at the daily UK Government coronavirus briefing, Dowden added: "Football, tennis, horse racing, Formula 1, cricket, golf, rugby, snooker and others are all set to return to our screens shortly." The key protocols that must be adhered to: All competition delivery partners and user groups involved, from the teams and athletes, to the support staff, officials and media, must travel individually and by private transport where possible Prior to entering the competition venue, they are expected to carry out a screening process for coronavirus symptoms. Anyone with known or suspected Covid-19 will not be permitted to enter and should be placed, or remain, in isolation Social distancing should be maintained by all groups where possible. This includes the competing athletes and support staff on the bench and field of play, such as during any disputes between players and referees, or scoring celebrations Dressing room usage should be minimised. However, showers can be used Competition delivery partners and elite sports organisations should appoint a named Covid-19 officer to be responsible for oversight of all planning and communications Premier League chief executive Richard Masters "welcomed" the decision, adding: "We have provisionally planned to restart the Premier League on 17 June, but there is still much work to be done to ensure the safety of everyone involved. "If all goes well, we will be thrilled to resume the 2019-20 season in just over two weeks' time." What will you do to recreate matchday experience when Premier League returns? Quiz: How well do you remember the season so far? Four Premier League games will be broadcast, free to air, live on BBC Sport when the season resumes. With concerns between Premier League clubs wanting to play at their own stadiums, and police forces requesting neutral venues, Dowden said the police and local authorities will determine where matches will be played. Professor Jonathan Van-Tam, the UK's deputy chief medical officer, said fans congregating outside stadiums as football returns is "clearly a police matter". "There has to be enough understanding that the venue can cope with the segregation and the organisation and the social distancing right up from the kick-off until the final whistle to make that the safest possible experience for everybody there," he said. "And that's going to be a crucial factor in choosing these venues." The government also announced that people in England will be able to exercise outside with up to five others from different households from Monday, provided that social distancing guidelines are followed. This means people who play team sports can meet to train together and do things like conditioning or fitness sessions, although physical contact is not allowed. It will also allow parents to accompany their children to coaching sessions carried out on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. The updated public guidance will be published on Monday.

  10. Hearts: Ann Budge frustrated by SPFL's response to cash and league proposals Hearts owner Ann Budge says "philanthropists" have approached her offering millions of pounds to help lower-league clubs, but that the SPFL's response was "not decisive enough". And Budge admits her draft league reconstruction paper is doomed to fail. On outside investment, Budge says the SPFL asked her to "put a paper in and they will discuss it next week". Chief executive Neil Doncaster says he believed Budge's talks with potential investors were ongoing. Doncaster added: "But if it is now appropriate for me to talk to them directly, I am very happy to do so. "I have had a number of conversations with Ann this week, including one that also involved another club chairman. Clearly, any income for our game, especially at such a difficult time, is something we would all welcome. "I am delighted to have heard Ann's comments on the radio this afternoon that there are, in fact, no conditions attached to this money. "I will be speaking again to Ann over the weekend and hope to be in a position to update our divisional meetings this week." Hearts reject Gillett takeover bid 'Timing all wrong' with Budge plan Hearts propose 14-14-14 revamp Budge, speaking to BBC Scotland Sportsound, described the offer of help for Scotland's lower-league clubs as "an amazing philanthropic gesture", believed to be worth millions of pounds with no conditions. The businesswoman continued: "They know me because of Hearts. What they're saying is, 'We would like to help Scottish football', and I can't even get that moving. "It's not quick enough, it's not decisive enough. I'm offering them money! Not my money. I don't think it should be for me to say, 'Here's a pot of money, this is how I think it should be spent'." As things stand, Hearts will be playing in the Championship next season, having been relegated in bottom spot when the Premiership was called with eight games remaining. "The inherent unfairness of it is why I'm still talking about it," said Budge, who reiterated that legal action is her least favoured option to address what she sees as the Tynecastle club being wronged by their relegation. She accepts the reconstruction proposal - which five lower-league clubs have confirmed they do not support - will not go through because "a number of clubs won't be able to play next season". "I put forward a paper which I want to be viewed as a discussion document," Budge added. "I'm not precious at all about 14-14-14. What I want to progress is the discussions. I feel like we have been treading water for weeks and nothing is happening." Responding to claims by the likes of Ross County chairman Roy MacGregor that her proposal is fuelled by self-interest, Budge said: "If it hadn't been Hearts there, no, I might not have been fighting so hard but I can assure you I would have been voting for change. "If I go right back to 15 March, I wrote to the SPFL and said we need to look at this so that clubs don't suffer. What I got back was a letter that basically said, 'Yes, if you would like to do the work and tell us what articles need changed, we'll look at it'. "That is not what I expect from the governing body. I expect them to take more leadership. "I should not be the one who's trying to come up with some solution. I and many others can see a tsunami coming towards us. Certain clubs cannot play behind closed doors. Other clubs don't want to for business reasons. "Everybody knows we have to make a change. Let's make a change proactively rather than waiting for clubs getting into difficulty. It's a nonsense." Budge says that manager Daniel Stendel now "technically does not have a contract," but stopped short of confirming the German will leave the club.
  11. Celtic urge SPFL to release fixture list for new season Celtic have urged the SPFL to issue the fixture calendar for the new season "as soon as possible". The new Premiership season will start behind closed doors on the weekend of 1 August - if Scotland is in phase two of its coronavirus recovery. Premiership clubs have been given a targeted return date of 11 June for player training before the new campaign. Talks will continue regarding how lower league football will restart. Sports minister Joe Fitzpatrick met the heads of the major sporting bodies on Friday to discuss restart plans. Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell, who contributed to the meeting, has welcomed the prospect of a phased return for training and competitive matches, in line with the safety of all concerned. Premiership season could start in August Golf, tennis and bowls return in Scotland Celtic crowned champions & Hearts relegated "The past few months have been extremely difficult for supporters, players, staff and clubs right across the game," Lawwell said. "Celtic has, for some time, been engaging with relevant experts in this field - knowledge and guidance which we have shared with the joint response group, other Scottish clubs and the Scottish Government in order to support a safe, effective and quick return to football. "Clearly, the important work we have done will be crucial as we move forward. We need to get back to football, safely, as soon as possible. That is our message and that is our aim. "The majority of leagues across Europe are back training, some already playing and many already with agreements in place to bring supporters back to matches. We can assure our fans that this will also be Celtic's priority." Celtic were crowned Scottish Premiership champions, and Hearts relegated, when the SPFL agreed to call the season on 18 May. Scottish football has been suspended since 13 March, with Friday's meeting mapping out a potential return to action. Celtic manager Neil Lennon said his squad will be ready to return as and when they are given the green light. "Our work off the pitch never stops and since the suspension of football was announced, we have been ensuring that our players have all they need across all areas in terms of their physical condition and all other elements of their welfare," he added.
