EFL has announced that The Championship is set to resume on June 20th after being suspended on March 8th March due to the coronavirus pandemic outbreak.

The Championship is set to resume almost three months after being suspended alongside other major competitions throughout the world due to COVID-19 fears.

The announcement made by EFL comes after the UK government gave the green light for domestic competitions to return behind closed doors subject to specific safety measures and precautions being met.

It is worth mentioning that the Premier league also announced June 17th as a return date.

With 108 fixtures remaining besides play-offs, the EFL announced that the Championship should conclude around June 30th.

In addition, the EFL have announced discussions to consider the expansion of matchday squads from 18 to 20 players plus the use of five substitutes in the remaining fixtures.

The EFL statement went as follows:

“Following Saturday’s announcement by the government to allow elite sporting events to return behind closed doors, the EFL has this weekend agreed to a provisional restart date of the weekend of 20 June 2020 for matches in the Sky Bet Championship, After discussing various approaches and the importance of completing the season in a similar timeline to that of the Premier League to avoid any potential issues with promoted and relegated clubs, the Sky Bet Championship season is set to conclude with the Championship play-off final on or around 30 July 2020.”

Furthermore, players have been back already in training since May 25th, with social distancing guidelines implemented.
